The Day After Thanksgiving


On Hold (8x8in on canvas panel)

Sometime I ask my husband for help titling these paintings, and he always delivers.

If I was going to take a break from painting at all this week today would have been the day.  Sick kiddo, exhausted preggo…but a friend wanted to come watch me paint and this was the only day that worked for her – so I sucked it up.  And I’m glad, these Christmas bulbs have been a joy to paint each time, though I did struggle the longest so far today setting up a good composition.  I knew I wanted big red front and center, and the polka dots helped fill some negative space.

I actually had an art lesson with another little friend right after I finished this one and we painted just the red bulb together, so I’ll post that tomorrow.

  1. Hi Teddi,

    I just discovered this painting on Dailypaintworks. I love it ! I visited your website and blog and just have to tell you how wonderful your work is! I live in Lafayette, Co., down by Boulder. My fiancé’ s daughter lives in Fort Collins. Next time I’m up there I’ll make a point of stopping by the gallery where you show your work. Thanks for sharing your beautiful paintings!

  2. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to your blog before but after looking at many of the posts I realized it’s new to me. Anyways, I’m certainly delighted I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!
