"Cosmos on Sill"


Cosmos on Sill
oil, 8x10"


Cosmos bipinnatus are one of the most common annuals here in
the US. There are around 20 species of these beautiful
and colorful flowers.
I usually like to mix lobelia in with other flowers as I did here.

"Hydrangeas and Lobelias"


Hydrangeas and Lobelias
oil, 8x10"



Most hydrangeas are white but also come in blue, pink, red and purple 
depending on  the acidity in the soil. If the soil is neutral they become
more pale in color, pink and purple. If the soil is acidic they turn blue.
They originated from Asia, North and South America.
There are 100 species of the hydrangea shrub.
Flowers truly gain my interest, there are so many of them and are
so beautiful. I guess that's why I paint them.

"Geranium Cuttings"


"Geranium Cuttings"
Oil, 8x10"


 I set these red geranium cuttings in olive jars in my studio,  
the buds were starting to open, so I couldn't waste
time in painting them.
Love the reds against the green compliments.

"Tools to Create"


"Tools to Create"
8"x10", oil



I love painting brushes that I use to paint with. So many
thoughts, energy and confusion come through each stroke
of the brush. The desire is there, the choice, the happy times the 
frustration times are all there while glaring at my 
progression as the the brush hits the canvas. 
 Is it Ok? Or am I really asking, am I OK?

I set these violets up in my studio and painted
them from life. 
This is one of the teacups that my sister in law was so gracious 
to give to me. Love the color.
