Red Lantana 5x7 oil SOLD

Lantana is part of the verbena family, native to the tropical regions of Americas and Africa. They can grow to 1-6ft tall.
This beautiful red lantana was in one of my flower pots, I took a snipping of it and  placed it into a water bottle. The lantana poised perfect for me.

Welcome 5x7 oil Sold

Years ago while feeling down, it felt like God was a million miles away. I asked, God, where are You? I know this sounds like a crazy request God, but I am asking You in desperation. I know you are here but it doesn't feel like it, could You send a bird my way? No bird that day, but the next morning there was a bird inside my house on my kitchen window sill! I cried with joy. It wasn't until after I painted this piece, He brought back that wonderful memory. I am always here.

White Hydrangeas 7x5 oil Sold

I loved how the light streamed through the window onto the hydrangeas. The hydrangeas seem to glow. Someone stated, that if you look at the sun you can not see the sun all you can see is the light. God is spirit and we can not see His spirit, but when Jesus came He was seen as the light of the world. Thank you so much Jesus for Your light, I would be in darkness without You.

Newborn Violas 6x6 oil

God formed a seed and was sown to the earth, roots formed, the plant began to sprout. Leaves appeared in rich green tones, tiny buds started to peak through. Then the buds opened and the Viola was born. Amazing!

Tomato, Salt and Pepper 6x6 oil

I used these salt and pepper shakers in a larger painting that I will be putting in a gallery. I really loved  how the reflections showed up from all its surroundings, so of course I had to do a small painting with them in it.
I usually spend about two days on a small painting, first day the initial lay in, second day the final touches to deepen colors and  to add that spark.
The food that God has made for us are so beautiful that we can't stop painting pictures of them. They come in their own wonderful packages too!

The Red Geranium 7x5 oil

I seem to be painting a lot of red geraniums lately, I think it's because of the red flowers against the green leaves that bring such intensity. I brought this geranium into my studio to paint but wanted the feel of being outside. I like to come up with my own ideas on how I want the settings. That's the fun of painting, even though sometimes you end up with a migraine. So much work can go into a painting, each stroke matters, the design matters, your thoughts matter but in the end it's what comes from your heart that matters.
