new painting! summerscape

8 x 10 inches
i love nothing more than 
fresh flowers 
in a variety of containers
placed all around my house



for fun,
some in process shots

while I was working on summerscape,
i noticed that dots needed some more color...
so, i did just that
can you see the silvers, pinks and greens?

this is what's hanging 
in my studio today

as always,
visit my web site for details
and to purchase


twinkle, twinkle backyard party

this image captures what i enjoy 
the most about summertime: 
outside fun full of good food and drink
and a good-looking tablescape with
fresh flowers and twinkle lights

now, take a little break to watch
how she was made

this was my set-up
