Doesn't Hannah look good in this red velvet dress!  This was fun to paint, I believe it was a combination of the dress along with the elegance of the pose.

Saint-Paul asylum in Saint Remy France 8"x10" oil

Sold
Saint-Paul Asylum is where Vincent Van Gogh stayed for a year from May 1889-May 1890 as a self-admitted patient.   During much of his stay he was confined to the grounds where he made paintings of the garden, olive trees, views from his window and of course the irises.   I took this reference photo when I visited in 2007.

Eleven year old Maddie is the granddaughter of a woman who paints with us on Friday.  She wanted to pose for our Friday group and had to wait until she had a day off from school.    She has been practicing for weeks and I must say she was a very good model!   All her practice paid off.

Bernheim small batch 6"x6" oil

Please click here to view auction information.
I like this painting because of the straight on angle of the bottle and the small shot glass on the one third line.

Bernheim is made at Heaven Hill Distilleries in Bardstown Kentucky is the only type of straight whiskey which uses predominately soft winter wheat and is produced in small batches and aged to perfection.  It is not really a bourbon since it is at least 51% wheat.   To qualify as bourbon, the law stipulates that it must be made in the USA, at least 51% and no more than 79% Indian corn and aged for at least two years.   It is a nice smooth tasting whiskey.

The challenge for me this day was to create an interesting layout keeping it simple and direct.  With her arm outstretched I wanted to include it so it made sense to put her head in the right 1/3.   I had taken a square canvas so I was locked into that shape.

Three daisies 8"x8" oil

Please click here for auction information.
These daisies waltzed into my studio and I just had to paint them.   Please excuse my recent absence from painting but I have been consumed with designing and sewing clothing.  I have been sewing since I was 10 and designed clothing off and on in my career and it seems that it has appeared in my life once again.   I do miss painting so maybe I will find time to paint on a regular basis again soon.

Jen in red 12"x9" oil

Sold
It certainly has been a while since my last post.   I feel like I am on vacation except for the fact that I have been working, but not on daily paintings.   I have been sewing bags, clothing and I made a fabulous hat with beading.   But I digress.   I painted this last Friday but forgot to post until now!   That should tell you where my head has been... in the dark under a hat!   Jen is a new model for our Friday "Go Figure" group and she came with her own outfit!   Which we loved!   I concentrated on painting in the focus area with the outlying areas just hinted at.  I am happy with this one.
