A year ago I planted zinnia seeds right in our front yard and was amazed that I had hundreds of flowers, some as large as tea cups! I was able to paint 5 or 6 paintings of these flowers and for a while they became my favorite plants. This painting is 8″ x 10″. It is still available. If you are interested, click here.
This lovely rose was painted in acrylic on mat board, not on cotton or linen panels or canvas. You can purchase it here if you are interested.
This is another small 5 x7 painting on a canvas panel. These illustrations were inspired by a magazine article my husband wrote regarding the Gullahs in South Carolina. You can learn more about this painting by clicking here.
I saw many cactus flowers in Arizona and I remember a drink made from the cactus leaves. It is hard to believe that such thorny plants could have lovely flowers! To see more information on this painting go to my online art gallery by clicking here.
A blue-banded old fashioned tea pot, cup, and cream pitcher on a white tablecloth posed several problems for me. The first one was making the teapot look like china. The reflection seemed to do the trick. The lemons were an add-on to tie together the pieces of china. To see more information go to my online art gallery by clicking here.
The oranges in this painting have a rough texture! It is an 8″ x 10″ acrylic painting on a canvas panel. To see more information go to my online art gallery by clicking here.
