Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.
Flower Pots at Heathcote
9x12 acrylic on canvas

Here is the large painting I am working on. It is acrylic on canvas and is a Florida type landscape. I am working on the water, putting in water lilies and then I hope to make the water look shallow and I plan to put two deer in it on the water's edge near the tree. We'll see! Sometimes plans go astray and changes have to be made---a painting often just evolves.

Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
