Oh my goodness, I'd forgotten how much I love painting sushi! Don't you just love the light on this one, and the little curliques of mysterious goodness?

Looking at Oneself

This one makes me laugh- the one olive admiring its own reflection in the other one's backside! When I was in Louisville there was one little olive painting that everyone loved, and that sold very quickly- I wanted to try my hand at painting olives again, but with a twist of course :)

Duck in Flight

4"x4"
click here to purchase
And this comes from some pictures I took while Nugget was chasing ducks at one of the campgrounds we stayed at! We were tossing them breadcrumbs so they wouldn't go far, but with a toddler chasing them they had to do something! So they'd waddle really really fast and take off, only to circle back around again. It was so funny! I love how the blurring of the wings gives the impression of movement, but keeps that iconic duck-y silhouette :)

Swinging

Well, this is a significant departure for me! We found some really wonderful parks on our trip, and this is from one of many shots I took of Nugget on the swingsets....

WIP - Strawberry and Rhubard Pie

8"x8"
On the way back home from Louisville to Durham, we stopped in Mount Airy, NC (better known as Mayberry) for food and to stretch our legs. And to let the baby run around, since she had just woken up from a nap. We had lunch at Barneys, which was delicious, and went to Miss Angels Heavenly Pies, which was super cool too- I got some nummies for still life purposes, and they were delicious!

Magnolia Sketch

I had no idea that magnolias could grow that much further northwest of us here in central NC, but they were blooming everywhere, and the smell was amazing! Not to mention the visuals- magnolias are so beautiful.

I'm working on bunches of paintings right now, all inspired by my trip up for Old Louisville Spring Fest- which was marvelous, by the way- and trying hard to get caught up here on the blog! Hugs to all you guys :)

A definitely-not-a-daily-painting I just finished for the show in Louisville! I had so much fun painting this one- I've really missed using the mirror balls!

I'm so glad I get to borrow Naomi's toys for painting!
Also, if I totally vanish- well, I will totally vanish at some point this week- anyways, I'm leaving for Louisville on Thursday for an art show up there on Saturday. Don't worry, I'll get all caught up with paintings and posts when I get back!

The Garden Path

 5"x7"
click here to purchase
Two pictures of this one, because it was just so darn hard to get a proper image of it.... you know a painting like this is convincing when you go to photograph it and the camera keeps switching to "night scene"! I love it, though. It was supposed to just be a daily, but I think I got a little carried away :)

Yellow Change Purse

Naomi got this when we went to the dentist, and she graciously allowed me to borrow it long enough to do a painting- I definitely want to try it again, there's something so interesting to me about the shapes, maybe it's the metal next to the gaudy yellow plastic....

Back to my usual dailies, finally :) Well, at least for a little while- I'm doing another show in less than two weeks (in case you needed proof of my insanity) in Louisville, and I expect I'll do some more whimsy for it....

Sailing Away

Spring Showers

My tiny angel :) Do you think people respond differently to my "whimsical" paintings than my more serious ones because of the spiritual component in these? Maybe I feel more free to express something abstract like that in a playful format?

Never mind me, I'm sleep deprived....
