Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.

6 x 6 acrylic painting on gessoed hardboard $50
Between rains, I journeyed out into the garden to look for flowers and everything I saw almost was yellow. I selected two different yellow flowers--not sure of names but I think the one on the left is alamanda and it has pretty waxy looking leaves. The other one is a perennial and I've forgotten the name. Anyway, I was in the flower painting mood, probably because we've had so much rain and I haven't been outside much.
Last night a huge limb fell off the live oak tree in the front yard! We are no longer under a tropical storm warning, though, so that is good news.
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.
