New original artwork....

This week's painting topic was to paint a picture of 3 fruits or veggies that start with the same letter as your first name. I created a painting of a French country buffet that incorporates lemons (in the glass jar), limes (a lime topiary), and loganberries (in the wreath). Prints available in my Etsy shop.

Random Topics

Last week's challenge topic in my online painting group was to "illustrate an idiom". I chose "Home Sweet Home" and came up with this design. It's a mixed media art piece done on 9x12 canvas paper. Who doesn't love a reason to paint a cupcake?! Notecards with this artwork coming soon to my Etsy shop!!

Today has turned out to be a really rainy Saturday. But last night was fun....we sat on the back patio, listened to some good tunes, and snacked on chips & salsa until the lightening bugs came out!

Tomorrow's plan includes taking the kiddos to the zoo!

My faves are the monkeys!
