Three pair 6"x6" oil on panel

Sold
Why are scissors referred to as pairs?   Because of the two holes?  The two halves (which would make one whole)?  The title "Three pair" I thought was odd enough so maybe it works.  I guess it is actually a trio of pairs.  Not to be confused with pears.

Rock, paper, scissors 5"x7" oil on panel

Well I couldn't resist this scenario of objects. However looking at this painting now the rock looks soft.  The rock I used looks like it is a rough piece of granite because it is pink with some grey veining, a very pretty rock but I guess I did not portray it very well.

A common thread 6"x6" oil on panel

Sold
Actually these might be embroidery scissors but aren't they cute here!  I am currently listen to an audio book titled "Mozart's Sister"  written in novel form.  It is interesting to be immersed in that time period and from the viewpoint of a child, well I am still at the beginning of the book.  All the talk about gowns and embellishment and here is a painting of thread!  Isn't that fascinating!  Well, maybe not.

Waiting 11"x14" oil on canvas

Sold
Our Go Figure friday group has decided to do some figurative studies that don't involve a portrait.   We will do half figurative studies and half head studies.  This keeps us from getting bored.  Or at least it keeps me from getting bored.

Spread em! 7"x5" oil on panel

The police saw these cut ups, cuttin up and making a mess of things, so they pulled them over and told them to "spread em and put your hands on the wall".   They promised not to do it again so they were released but don't you know they were cuttin up again just a half and hour later.  There is just no changing some people and why would you want to!

Cut flower 5"x7" oil on panel

Sold
This pair of scissors were our kitchen scissors and we referred to them as the red handled scissors.  Now they are so worn that there is hardly any red left.   I had them sharpened last year and now they cut as good as new.

Am I hovering too much? 6"x6" oil on panel

Well, I ate all the cherries so I was forced to start a new series I'm sure you all are glad to hear.   I was hearing statements from people like, "What's with all the cherries?" and "Enough of the cherries!"    I love scissors and have many different types so let me see what I can come up with.   You know I do series because I heard that is what they teach in art school.  As some of you know, I never had the chance go to college so I am pretty much self taught with a few classes here and there from those I admire.  Enough of that, moving forward to the new series.

Tell maintenance we lost one 6"x6" oil on panel

Sold
The young leaf fell from her perch and landed on the cool blue surface.  While looking around and pondering what to do next she spotted her reflection on the shiny surface and thought she looked different, more compact.  Was this a cruel joke?

I am trying to see everything but not paint everything I see.  My motto of late.

We're free at last! 6"x6" oil on panel

Gettin into the grove now.  I think this is the first time I have painted these particular cherries, ok, yes I painted them yesterday, THAT was the first time.  They are cute little pink and yellow things.  Sort of like peaches but with out the fuzz, but more translucent, and smaller, with longer stems and taste different... ok, not like peaches.  I had better quit now.
