Gift Shop with Apples, oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99
After spending so much time on figures and plein air I decided to do a still life. My good friends Greg and Gary have a gift shop at their nursery. This vase was there for sale. Irresistible! I had to borrow it to use as subject matter. Wow. When you haven't done something for a while the bike shakes. It's going to take some doing to get these babies loosened up. Stay tuned for apple mania.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
