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

8 x 10 Pastel painting
Every now and then I feel the need to do a soft pastel study and when the roses began to really bloom, I couldn't resist the beautiful pink ones! I love the background color; instead of blue of sky, I choose the color of the ground and the mulch around the plant. Click on this for a detailed view.
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.
