Day 20 ~ How Does Your Garden Grow?

The Gardener8″ x 10″ oil on canvas

I forgot all about this painting. I was working on it before I left on my road trip and figured I’d post it when I got back. How, crazy is that????

I am working on a much larger version of this, so this is kind of a preliminary painting. I thought it would be perfect for my theme of painting women, or girls, or whatever…

I kept wondering why I was so far behind, but this helps…and then I ask myself why I’m doing this to myself…anyone else feel that way?


Day 19 ~ En Liten Flicka

Flicka6″ x 6″ oil on gessoed panel

Inspired by my Swedish Heritage and my love for split rail fences. I thought the fence would be a great backdrop for a little Swedish girl in traditional dress and yes, this is actually my dress. The dress has flowers on it like the cap, but I just don’t have the time right now to add all the detail. 🙂

Day 18 ~ Road Side Stand Sunflowers

Farmer's Market Sunflowers4″ x 4″ oil on mini canvas


My last mini in the series of trying to catch up… 😉  These sunflowers were all bunched up together in a big pot at a Road Side Stand in Holland, Michigan. There was actually a bee on one…maybe I should stick it in there…???

On to try and paint two more paintings today…
