“Leaves”

Here’s another in the “Leaves” 4×4 series. Can you tell I love saturated colors?

This one was done with a brush. I like using palette knives but love the finer look that can be achieved with brushes. Definitely more exploration with knives will be done this year!

Pine cone and Acorns with a splash of Tinsel!

I just love this time of year and using nature as a decorating theme! Pine cones, acorns and the tinsel on the Christmas tree are some of my favorite things. In fact, I was inspired to paint some miniature oil paintings with these subjects, and I use them as part of my holiday decor.  I hope your  holiday planning is going well and you are enjoying this time of year! I’ll be sharing more Christmas paintings this week. 🙂

Blue Morning Glory

This week has been a busy one with varnishing and framing paintings. This little Blue Morning Glory painting is one of my favorites.

It looks fabulous in its walnut toned frame!

Blue Morning Glory

This past weekend, I transplanted my Morning Glory seedlings into hanging baskets. I saw an idea on Pinterest to grow Morning Glories in hanging baskets and let the vines cascade down. It makes a stunning display of color! Last year I grew the flowers on a trellis in the garden but they were too close to the fence and the deer ate the vines, leaving me with nothing! This year I’m outsmarting them and growing my favorite blue flowers hanging from our top decks, 20′ in the air! Take that deer!

Here’s a few of my favorite Morning Glory paintings:

I’m looking forward to creating some more Morning Glory floral paintings this year! And, if you’re on Pinterest follow me and of course I’ll follow back!
