I look for these little crab apples each year. They grow along a bike path I ride often, and this year the tree was bursting with them! The colors were perfect too, just turning from yellows, to reds. They aren't as interesting once they've all turned completely red.
Below are some "in progress" photos... I started out with just one bunch of apples, but added more later, they were just so much fun to paint!

I have a blackberry bush in my backyard that is loaded with berries that are starting to ripen.
I had to paint a picture of them.
Below is the start of my painting... I also had fun doing a few drawings of them before painting.

I love these roses, they are beautiful when they are just opened, and even more beautiful as they age... their color fades until they are almost white. I did this little study back in June, painted from life.
Below are a couple of pictures of work in progress.... Thanks for looking at my artwork today!

100% of the sale of this painting will be donated to unrefugees.org to help the displaced people of Ukraine. Thank you!
I began this painting as a demo for the Suburban Rochester Art Group. I had set up my still life, and worked on the painting for about 1 1/2 hours, and then finished it up at home.

"PB&J with Strawberry" 5x7
Here are my two most recently finished paintings, now available on eBay. These were fun subjects to paint, but even though I enjoyed painting them, I didn't get to enjoy eating them. They were very stale by the time I finished :-)
Some pics of work in progress....
|I changed the background color on this one toward the end. A teal color instead of the light violet gray.|

I love to paint Christmas themed paintings at this time of year, and especially a candle. There's something about a lighted candle that seems special to me.
Below are some pictures of the painting in progress...
For this painting, I did a detailed drawing on paper first, and transferred the drawing to the toned board. I only lit the candle near the end when I was ready to paint the flame, so that I didn't burn the candle down too far :)

I have always loved to draw with my colored pencils, and I have accumulated many drawings.
I finally decided to select a few of my favorites, matte them, and offer them for sale.
Here are a few that I've chosen. They are always drawn on acid free artists' quality paper, with Faber-Castell and Prismacolor pencils.
If interested in purchasing, they are available in my Esty store, Click Here To Buy

I finished this painting just as the first day of autumn came.. so I named it "Hello Autumn".
The pumpkin, grapes and apple all came from a farm market near where I live.
Below are some "work in progress" photos....
Thanks for looking at my artwork today!

I bought this little birdhouse from Hobby Lobby a year ago, and finally decided to paint it. The combination of it's straight lines, and circles appealed to me. Below are a couple of in progress photos.
This was done on a linen panel. I love the fine texture of the surface.
