Tea Time, oil on hardboard, 6x6", $99

Sometimes it really helps the painting process to mix things up a bit.  Setting up a still life is almost harder than the painting part.  It also can stir some lively debate.  My husband (also an artist) does not like this background.  Bah! it's one of my favorite parts.  Good thing it's not up to him.

The Connection, oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99

Who knew there were so many shades of red and orange?!?!  a bit of a nightmare to paint but I'm guessing I'll tackle another one.  Glutton for punishment

Treadin' Water, oil on hardboard, 6x6" $99

I love frogs!  when we first moved to the country I dug a pond in the front yard to see if we could attract them.  It's never been as many as I want but the fish we added probably didn't help.  They find those frog eggs mighty tasty.  Regardless, they are so fun to look at and watch.  Pretty good painting experience as well.

"Deep Lake" oil on hardboard, 8x8", $176

This is another painting done on excursion with my friend and fellow painter Lori Twiggs.  Tomorrow we venture out again.  The Pacific NW is expecting a change in weather tomorrow so it could afford an entirely different experience. Stay tuned!
