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

"Old Irish House"
"Old Irish House" 8 x 10 Acrylic on canvas, framed $185 Painted from photos and sketches from Norther Ireland, the courtyard around this old Manor house was so relaxing and full of plants and flowers. My daughter and I had a fun day of painting here, complete with a healthy lunch from the owners' gardens.
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.
