"The Last Traffic Light"

Well, it has been so long since I posted to this blog that I almost forgot how..... Here are a few of my tomatoes that I did in colored pencil.  I will post each one individually and then show you how they where framed...  Once in the frame the title was "The Last Traffic Light".  This was because I had already done Apples, "Traffic Light" and Peppers, "The Next Traffic Light", So this was going to be the "Last" one in the series.
One good thing about using vegetables for props is that you get to eat them! So I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

"Rhodie in the Spotlight"

Here is another floral,  this one is done in Watercolor!  The flower was from my garden but I did change the values a bit to give it more depth in the shadows.  I wanted the flower with the light filtering through the petals to be the focal point!  Size on this one is
10" H x 14" wide.  As you can tell I really like to paint florals.  I was always told that you do your best work when you enjoy what you are painting!

Grand Opening

Looks like I have been very bad about keeping up my blog!  So today I thought I would add a new piece.  This one is all Colored Pencil, done on White Stonehenge Paper, size is aprox. 10" x 10 ".  The title came about becuase I was having a one woman show and I needed something to use for a grabber.  So I thought "Grand Opening" sounded like it would fit the bill!

Radiant Rose.

Well it seems like it has been a while since I last posted to this Blog.  Time sure flies when we are having Fun!
This painting was done with Watercolor.  It is of one of the roses that I received for my birthday several years ago.  The Rose has long since faded and died but hopefully the painting will keep it alive forever.

It was done on Arches Watercolor Paper using various Watercolors.  
Size 14"H x 18"W.

Autumn's Bounty

Well it looks like a missed a day... But I did post 2 paintings on Friday, that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!!

"Autumn's Bounty" was done on Arches Watercolor Paper using various Watercolor paints.   Size is 10" H x 14" W.  I got the idea for this painting when I saw the branch of berries up against the blue sky.  Since chickadees are one of my favorite birds I thought it would be a good contrast against the bright blue of the sky.

Broken Strand

Here is another of my favorite Colored Pencil Paintings..... It's on Stonehenge White Paper.  Size is 11" x 15".  I won a First Place with this at an Art Show in Ohio and  I entered it three times in the CPSA National and never had it accepted.  But I like it so I guess that's all that matters......
