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

"Lilies and Brown Betty"
"Lilies and Brown Betty" 12 x 16 Watercolor $175 I finished the still life with potted lilies and my little Brown Betty tea pot. By the time I got it painted, all the flowers had dropped off the lily and now I must plant it in the ground! I always enjoy doing crochet and lace, so it was fun getting the reflections in the tea pot. The painting looks more vibrant in real life...I may need a new camera! I took the photo outdoors, but still, the colors look more subdued here than in real life. Hope you like it and your comments are appreciated.
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.
