"Sunflower" Day 6 (completed)
















Oil on Canvas 48" X 36" Commissioned - $400 SOLD -

Due to the large size of this piece, and the time involved, I decided to document the process. Day one was just measuring and sketching, and day two was meant to be only for background, but I found my groove and only stopped when it became too dark to see. This was commissioned by my landscaper as a gift to his wife, who loves sunflowers!

"Sunflower" Day 2














This weekend I traveled up to Cortez, Colorado to the 12 Hours of Mesa Verde mountain bike race. I supported my husband while he raced solo on his single speed mountain bike. He completed 7 laps (15 miles each) for a grand total of 105 miles, landing him 5th place out of 20 in his class! Needless to say I didn't paint while I was gone, but here's what I did on Wednesday and Thursday. Due to the large size of this piece, (48" X 36") and the time involved, I decided I am going to document the process. Day one was just measuring and sketching, and day two was meant to be only for background, but I found my groove and only stopped when it became too dark to see.

New Designs

I just added a few new design pieces that you can access by clicking on the Design link below the header "Mixed Media and Additional Oils" at the bottom of the page. These are some newly completed designs. I will only post new oils in the blog as they are created.

Update

I am sorry that I have been delinquent in my painting, but my focus has been derailed. I am excited to say that I've been commissioned to do a rather large piece for my favorite landscaper, who has always offered great support for my works in progress as he peered at them through the window. At the same time I have been working with a shop owner in Colshester, Connecticut who has agreed to sell two of my previously completed pieces. Feast or Famine.
