Avocado and Parsley

I eat avocados every day. I love them, they make my hair and nails beautiful and offer me with plenty of potassium to keep my muscles ready for running (and golf!). Plus the color! The green flesh of an avocado is, to me, the most beautiful color in the world! It’s my favorite.

Asparagus And Figs

I love to cook. Anyone who knows me well knows this and is ceaselessly bombarded by it on a daily basis as I post a lot of food pics on instagram… I can’t help it. I’m one of those people. I am dabbling with oils lately. they allow me more control and detail. I’m finally getting a hang of it and decided to try a larger painting. This one is a 12″x12″. I’m excited to see where my talents lead and how they improve over the next few weeks…

Daily Painting: Blueberries

My daughter and I love blueberries, not so much my Hubby, but that’s his problem. I wanted to try painting cloth today. It was surprisingly easy to do with the wax. I find I am far better with organically shaped objects than objects with a hard edge. I will continue to push myself, though. The way wax can be both opaque and transparent is a God-send. Anyone used to oils would love this medium!

Daily Painting: Line of Figs

SOLD

Figs are funny little fruits. Some people love them, some hate, and some have no idea what they are. I believe one friend of mine thought they were mini eggplants… I got a whole basket of these little guys at the store the other day. I cut them up, and coupled them with a slice of goat cheese and wrapped them in prosciutto. Yummy. I’ve had them with blue cheese before, also, but wasn’t a big fan of the blue I’d picked. Anyway… a good bottle of wine was the perfect thing to wash them down.

I also did 2 paintings, one big and one small so be sure to scroll all the way down to view both!

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!

Pears Conversating

SOLD

I don’t just paint horses! I was taken by these pears. I thought they looked so very human standing there, talking to each other as their stems loomed in conversation. I like how fruit can do this.
