I painted this from a photograph taken in late winter, when the snow was melting and the fields were muddy. This was done on canvas board, which was very different for me. It gives a blended quality with a lot of soft edges.

So, maybe you have noticed that I have posted three paintings in the last three days. I didn't want to say anything, but, I'm going for 30 paintings in 30 days. I'll go for 30 days and then see if I can continue. I'm already exhausted, but having a blast. Wish me luck!

I have to paint everyday. I've known that's what I've needed to do. If I don't paint for a week it is so hard to get back into it, I find myself with major painters block. So, I'm committed (I say that for myself more than anyone else. You know it's that motivational thing.)

Not much to say about this painting. I just like painting apples and want to practice and keep getting better. I am loving being in the studio lately! ...enjoy.

I have really been enjoying myself painting this week. Just the pure joy of painting, the process and development that comes with practice.
The name of this piece just popped in my head as I was working on it. I know not to original.

I like these cherries. They are nudging up against each other, like they are in love.
They are also connected to one another by their stems. So, I named the painting

Where I live, there is this cute little consignment shop and I often go there to look for items to paint. This time I came across some "Fiestaware" that caught my eye. When I went to pay for it the lady said "Oh, I see you have some Fiestaware". Now, I didn't even know what "Fiestaware" was, I just thought the cup and saucer was cute. I just nodded my head and said "Sure do!"
