Lilies and Melons, oil on canvas 12 x 12 , SOLD
I was so excited how yesterday’s painting turned out I thought I would stick with the lilies until they withered. And boy do they smell so delightful coupled with the very ripened melon... I wish you were here so you too could enjoy this heavenly aroma!
As you can see in the small study and the watercolor sketch I include a white coffee cup. At the time I thought it made a lovely arrangement but I’m glad I left it out of the larger painting.
I’m looking forward to this weekend’s Easter Celebration with my family and attending church services. Easter has always been a favorite holiday since I was a little girl. Even though I still love coloring eggs, making easter baskets and chocolate bunnies... Easter is a time of celebration like no other. I’m so thankful that I can demonstrate the love and joy in my heart for a God who loves me... and I do it with a brush, tubes of colorful paint and canvas!
Lilies and Limes, oil on canvas 12 x 12, SOLD
I purchased these lilies on Monday and it was quite the challenge to keep them away from my cat Jac! He just loves flowers and he’d follow me around the house hoping I’ll place the bouquet down on a counter he could reach. I purchases these at Trader Joe’s in West Hartford. I love their flowers... always fresh and very reasonably priced. It wasn’t until today that I found the perfect vase to display them in. I spotted this glass pitcher in a consignment shop called New to U Consignment in Wallingford.
The Daily Paintwork’s Challenge this week is Easter and I really wanted to enter the challenge. Although I’m not sure what limes have to do with Easter. I like they way they balanced out the composition and the colors complimented each other.
THIS PAINTING SOLD RIGHT OFF THE EASEL!

This painting sold while it was still wet!
My friend Joy purchased this painting after just viewing it in an email I sent her. Her and her husband Scott framed it and sent me a photo of her piece. It's beautiful! Thank you Joy and Scott for all your support and help... I really appreciate the both of you!
Growing up on Down River Road, my neighborhood girlfriends and I loved to set up a lemonade stand in the middle of the summer. I can remember charging a quarter a cup. One of us would sit at the card table with a very tiny sign, a few plastic cups and a pitcher of lemonade while the other three of us would jump around, doing cartwheels and yelling
“ Lemonade for Sale” at all the cars passing by.
