#232 Pear on Pink


Click to buy! (6x6 inch oil)

When I'm needing to refocus, it often helps me to do a quick painting of a piece of fruit.  Just keep it simple.  This time I chose a pear...which I've only painted one other time for a 10 minute painting exercise.  I love back light and I can't seem to get away from pink this year. :)

#231 Lemons and Blue


Click to buy! (8x8 in.)

I painted this piece last Friday.  The glass was another dollar store purchase...blue/green, of course!  I love how the shadow of the glass is colorful and light.  I really enjoyed painting on the linen panel, again.  I have one more and I'm hoping to do a third painting with lemons on it.  My plan was to do it tonight, but I was too tired from the weekend and a full day of work and errands today!

#230 Lemons and Linen


Click to buy! (8x8 in.)

I had a lot of fun experimenting with a linen panel for the first time.  It was really different from using gessobord.  I've already painted another on linen and plan to paint one more in the same way.  Maybe it will be a little series when I'm finished :)  Was out of town with my family over the weekend but hoping to paint again on Monday evening!

#229 Morning Flowers


 Click to buy! (7x5 inches)

I almost never paint in the mornings, but on Sunday my daughter was occupied and I had a little time before church so I decided to get started on this one.  It was nice to paint while I was still kind of fresh in the day!  Ha!  The flowers were tricky.  I started with them and wiped them 3 times before getting it like they are now.

#228 Get Loose


Click to buy! (6x6 in.)

Painted for the Daily Paintworks Challenge. It was really fun experimenting. I definitely see a different between the first apple and the last, but it was hard to make it get a little bit looser each time. I definitely want to try this again!

#227 Mr. Serious


Click to buy! (6x6 in.)

Painted for last week's DPW Challenge.  I started it last week but didn't get a chance to finish it until yesterday.  It felt pretty out of control when I started but it came together in the end.

#226 July Book Club


Click to buy!  (6x6 inches)

We read "Orphan Train" for this month's book club.  It is historical fiction and I really enjoyed it.  I experimented with a pattern in the background of this one.
