Home stretch of painting! Taking advantage of a snowy day to paint. Less fattening than baking;-)

Last Harvest of the Cherries

Last summer, we enjoyed hundreds of cherry tomatoes from one prolific plant.  I gathered what was left before the first frost and piled them into an old wooden bowl. This still life created itself when I placed the bowl down on our leaf and pine needle covered gravel patio.

I often take photos of the luscious fruits and vegetables at Lull Farm in Hollis, NH.  These tomatoes caught my

eye…and I painted them almost the size of soccer balls. Very fun painting!

Glamorous Goblet

This goblet resides in a cheerful pub….but if you look closely, you will find some creepy faces in hidden places….

Lately, I cannot seem to finish a watercolor and pen and ink painting without finding the faces of various fantasy creatures in the paint…so I have given in, or should I say, penned them in.

I will add the tag Creepy Faces in Hidden Places  to these paintings….rather like Highlights for Kids Hidden Pictures;-)

I added pastel and a kiss of glitter (Thank you Paula) to finish this watercolor and ink painting.



Blanche’s Angel

Greeting Card $4.00

This charming brooch was a gift to my dear grandmother Blanche. As a proud new immigrant to the USA via Elllis Island (she was 16) , she roomed with several of her Lithuanian immigrant frinds and siblings.  As was the case with any of those who came from the “old country” for a new life of freedom, she worked several jobs, one of which  was to clean house for a wealthy family. The Madam of the the household no longer cared for this cracked brooch and gave it to my grandmother.  Lucky me..I still cherish it.

I took this photo several years ago…(long before the luxury of digital photography) and hand colored the brooch with a very thin layer of oil pastels.

What do you think   Not a bad Valentine’s Card….?

Autumn Leaf

As August comes to a close, did you ever notice how the first few colorful leaves that cross your path stop you in your tracks…and,  perhaps,  make you stare for a bit…and maybe even inspire you to stoop down to snatch them up to examine them more closely?  Seems that this simple symbol of the change of seasons is special…and dramatic…and do you remember proudly ironing them between two sheets of waxed paper?
