Work in progress ~ This 8″x10″ oil painting was painted in plein air from Roses in my garden. After it dries a bit more, I’ll be glazing and tuning up the colors. Perhaps I’ll add another petal on the table. What do you think?

The finished painting ~ 8″x10″ oil on canvas
I recently made a fish wall hanging out of driftwood as a gift for some friends. Here’s a little video of the process. Very easy and fun to do!
The Daisies are in full bloom! They grow wild and the other day I picked a vase full as my subject for a new painting. I read somewhere that if you put an aspirin and a tsp. of sugar in the water it keeps the flowers longer. So I did and took the arrangement into the studio. I worked out my color palette and laid in the background color on my panel, with the plan to begin painting the next morning.
Guess what? The aspirin killed the flowers! I came into the studio the next morning to find all the flowers keeled over. Bad information! I had to go in search of fresh flowers and luckily was able to find some as they are starting to end their life cycle. I made a sketch and transferred it over to my panel and now all is good! That’s if nothing else weird happens over night!
More to come as I progress.
