Daily Painting: Daylight Peach

I think I’m the only person in my little family that likes peaches. I don’t know why. Growing up there was nothing better to me than an anemic canned peach in all that sweet syrup. I love peaches with plain yogurt, or whipped cream. Not a big fan of cooked peaches, though. No… This peach was actually a little on the raw side, crunchy, that was good. Just like and under-ripe pear!

Daily Painting: Daylight Pear

SOLD

My daughter and husband really like pears. I like a pear in a glass of lemonade (likely with vodka) on a hot day, or cold… anytime, really. Pears are one of those fruits you see a lot in still life’s, but it’s also a fruit people seem enamored with. I find the array of colors to be what draws me to them. They go well with cheese, too. What’s a fruit and cheese place without pears? My favorite little bar has a fruit and cheese plate with dried pears. Love it! So anyway, here is my daylight pear!

One-A-Day-Painting: Big Cat

I have two cats, one we recently put outside for the first time in his life. He loves it, if not a little too much. He’s gone native. There’s a black cat that was coming around, my cat has gone after him twice now. I think the black cat is a stray, but it’s good to know my sweet, lazy indoor/outdoor toothless cat can hold his own in the ‘wild’. He’s even on Prozac and still he can’t handle the black-cat-invader. My poor drugged up kitty, maybe one day he’ll learn to relax and get along with his friends.

One-A-Day-Painting: Radishes

My grandmother always used to put radishes in her salads. I’m not sure if she still does, but I was a fan. I also love they way they look with their funny little tails. It was dark and rainy here today, so they were a nice little bright spot in my day!

One-A-Day-Painting: Key

SOLD

My daughter likes to use this key as her ‘car key’ in her little red pedal car. I put a string on it so she couldn’t lose it as fast. I’m pretty sure this key was from our first house. I loved that house, we remodeled the whole thing down to the studs. It took us a year and we did everything ourselves! We lived without a kitchen for 6 months. Looking back, I’m not sure how I survived!

One-A-Day-Painting: Lemon Water

SOLD

Lemon water is my all-day-every-day go to for thirst quenching. It’s alkaline, good for your body, and tastes REFRESHING. Anyway, since it’s something I see and do so much I assumed it would make a great subject for my Daily Painting this weekend… enjoy!

One-a-day Painting: Strawberry

SOLD

My daughter and I picked some berries today. We planed these last year. She likes to water them, and eat them. I call her my fruit-itarian because 90% of her current diet is fruit. She’s 3 and very picky.

One-A-Day-Painting: Lavender

I have a very small lavender plant on my front porch and the flowers were finally dry enough to pick. They smell amazing. I’m not sure if theres any use in putting them in water, since they’re basically dried up, but it looks nice that way. Anyway, for my daily painting today, they were it!

One-A-Day-Painting: Pyrex Eggs

SOLD

So, I’m going to join the bandwagon here and start doing smaller, one-a-day paintings. Not that I’ll do one EVERY day, but I’ll at least finish it within a 24-hour period. For my first try at mundane, everyday objects, I chose my breakfast. Many do.

I have a love affair with eggies. I love eggs. I eat eggs every morning–two eggs and a slice of spelt toast. I like good eggs, too. Orange yolks, a hard thing to acquire from the grocery store brands, but, I’ve found a few that are good. One day I’ll have a coup. Just not now.
