A couple of days ago I had a inquiry for one of my sunflower paintings.
This collector lives far away from here, and couldn’t remember exactly the painting she was interested in purchasing. My daughter just happened to be working at the gallery that day and sent me this picture to refresh her memory. Thought I would share it here and give you a peek into the gallery. 🙂
I’ve been really busy in the gardens these past months, amending soil, planting seeds, making new garden beds, and hoping for a great harvest this summer. All to say that it hasn’t left me with a lot of energy to paint, but I have had some great sales at the gallery, so I thought I’d share a few…
Speaking of peachy… I have a beautiful peach tree in my back yard. Unfortunately, it usually blossoms out, and then we have a freeze and consequently no peaches. But this year we did not have that last freeze, and I am eagerly anticipating a wonderful harvest of peaches!!! Can’t get more peachy than that, can you? 🙂
Last year I planted a lot of Dahlias, then overwintered the tubers. I’m hoping for a good year of Dahlias again this year. This next painting of one of my dahlias is a small one 5″ x 7″ surrounded by a beautiful ornate gold frame that I had stored away in my studio.
And a couple of minis… SOLD
And some cards… SOLD
It has been a good month. Hope you all are having a blessed month as well.
As the weather gets hotter here, I’m planning on spending a good amount of time in my studio working on those back alley paintings and whatever else inspires at the moment. But for now you will find me out gardening…
On my way to our local garden center Terra Cotta to buy some plants for my porch pots. 🙂
Happy gardening everyone, get some sunshine and dirt on those hands… it’s good for your health.
Thanks for following along on my art journey. My daughter has challenged me to paint all 30 days of September, while she does pottery. We’ll see how that goes. 🙂 I’m recovering from twisting my foot after clumsily falling down some stairs. It’s hard to rest, but maybe it will give me the umph I need to get back to painting.
I have a few more gallery shares coming soon. Hope you enjoy! 🙂
How many of you have been to Trader Joe’s? How many of you love Trader Joe’s flowers? This next painting is of a bouquet of flowers from Trader Joe’s… The vase belongs to my daughter Sage who absolutely loves the store and most likely bought the flowers for me. The vase and flowers combined make up the subject of this large floral painting.
There are already leaves turning color and falling off the trees and I harvested three pumpkins from my garden. This is what inspired this little fall mini today, plus sunflowers from the Farmer’s Market…
