Tea for One SOLD

4 x 6 acrylic on panel

This mug took forever to paint! I must have swiped the canvas at least 8 times! Needless to say I'm done with it. Why is it some of the little ones require so much effort and the big ones can just pop out?

I'm a Little Tea Pot - SOLD

8 x 8 acrylic on canvas

I'm trying to loosen my brush strokes and not be so concerned with exact replication. This painting was birthed after a day of intense work on other paintings. I suddenly wanted something totally different to try so I cleaned off my easel, set up this still life and got to it. (I'm trying to decide if this is done or not so I haven't signed it yet). It came together very quickly
So much of my painting journey is an experiment. When a work turns out I'm always pleasantly surprised.

Apples & Silk - SOLD

12 x 12 acrylic on canvas

I tried something new here: painting on a black primed canvas.
