Breakfast Nook

I am so happy to post this painting. Oh how I love this breakfast nook, and it even comes with a little dog. I would love to start my day at this table– I would eat my english muffin with almond butter and jam, write in my journal, read the morning news, and plan my day. Then, I would go wake up miss Sadie. Oh, it's fun to dream.

Gotta love Martha

Above are 2 new paintings I have started this week. Both images I pulled from the latest Martha Stewart Living magazine. The room with the chaise looks so peaceful- the perfect place to relax with a great book or magazine. I am a sucker for natural light and combining indoor and outdoor spaces. This painting is 9 x 12 inches.

The bottom image you'll have to look at closely (it's easier to see if you click on the image to enlarge). I have done the initial drawing of this kitchen. This painting will be my biggest interior to date- it's 24 x 30 inches. Can't wait to get paint on this one. Stay tuned.


Working Together

Thought ya'll would like to see how Sadie and I work/play together in our studio. Sadie enjoys playing with her toys (books, dolls, baskets, stuffed animals). Her favorite thing to do lately is drop balls out of her area and then point to them as they roll around. Generally, she does great playing in her space. It makes me very, very happy when I can get around 15 minutes of uninterrupted time. 

Green Kitchen

I've been meaning to post this little gem for a while. Finished this one about a week ago. It's super cute and tiny (5 x 7 in). I am really enjoying painting interiors, and I love the greens and yellows in this painting. 

This painting along with Yellow Ottoman and Nate's House are currently on view at the Contemporary Art Workshop in Chicago.
