135 Mo’ Berries

Standard

This week with the 12 year olds we finished the lesson on soft and hard edges.  Since I finished mine from last week I decided to try it again, it’s never a bad idea to paint the same thing twice.  I sat down in the same spot to get started and felt that the composition would…

120 Thirsty Berries

Standard

SOLD Yay!  I got this vase from my mom a few weeks ago for my birthday and I finally got the inspiration to paint it.  This still life came together so quickly, meant to be.  The berries are from my Christmas decorations….I haven’t put them away yet because I’ve been eyeing them waiting to put…

Under the Mistletoe

Standard

(8x8in on canvas panel) $85USD We went on a hunt for a Christmas tree this morning with our neighbor friends.  While out searching, my neighbor picked up this sweet little branch with a berry on it and I was inspired!  So today during nap time I painted a mistletoe mini, and then this guy.  I…

Strawberry Doubles

Standard

123 Berry Patterns

Standard

SOLD Art lessons are back up and going!  My 8 year old friend wanted to paint today (lately we’ve been drawing, a -great!- skill to always go back to) and I was excited about this simple still life.  It’s the same Christmas berries as from the other day, but I thought all the gaps between…

78 Team Captain

Standard

N/A As the house project wrap up (at least the crucial, before-we-move-in ones) I decided to not leave the house today until I painted something.  I am actually quite inspired to paint a bigger piece today too, but I got a call from a friend in need….we’ll see if the inspiration hangs around later today.…
