Daily Painting: Double Cheeseburger

SOLD

Sometimes I think it’s better to paint a cheeseburger than eat one. I love Five Guys burgers. It’s sorta a chain I suppose, but they’re amazing! I had one this weekend in fact, all 1000 calories of it… and had a salad for dinner. But really, who doesn’t like a good burger, even vegetarian. There’s something about the layered ability of flavors. Sandwiches of all kinds are my hands down favorites. This little painting is only 6″x6″, making it so cute and little as it stands off the wall. Such a talking piece!

Daily Painting: Humble Bumble Bee

SOLD

I decided I’m going to paint a bee. I like bees, I have to if I’m going to make paint out of beeswax. I love how this bee is almost looking at his own shadow. Granted, I don’t love a bee when it’s buzzing around my head, but they sure are cute in a picture!

Daily Painting: Baseball Mitt

SOLD

My husband played college ball in New York for a little while. He loved the sport, and was good at it. To this day i’m not really sure why he gave it up. He did get hurt once. I actually even knew my husband when he and my brother played t-ball. He lived in my neighborhood, even. To me, baseball carries little interest as something to watch on TV, but symbolically it means a lot to me! Besides, what’s more american than baseball!? I hope you all enjoy!

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 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: 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.
