"Varnish Brush"


"Varnish Brush"
oil, 10x8"


I enjoy painting tin cans, their like a mirror reflecting images
that surround them.  
I usually use a sponge to varnish my paintings, the ones at Home Depot 
I found to be the best, they leave a nice smooth finish. I get a bit lazy
when it comes to cleanup, I varnish quite a few paintings at the same time, then
toss it. I also use water bottle caps taped on my palette for my 
medium, Liquin original, if there is some left over I put it in a sealed
container until the next sitting. I try to think of anything that makes life
a tad easier.

"Honeybee and Lavenders"


"Honeybee and Lavenders"
oil, 7x5"


These lavenders were in a pot on my deck, there were many bees at 
the time pollinating, working like crazy. I got to close to take 
pictures, they didn't like that. The lavenders are really close to my
window. it was easier to take the picture from inside. Plus they move
so fast, I had to take many photos to get a few good ones.  

I usually like to paint life size or smaller but the honeybee is so tiny
 and so is the lavender, I had to make them both
larger so they could be seen in the painting.

"Honeybee"


"Honeybee"
oil, 6x6"


The bees are out now pollinating like crazy. After painting this
bee it intrigued me so much I had to research them. I was so
surprised at their routine, between pollinating, the honeycomb and
taking care of the Queen, I see why they call them worker bees.
The honeycomb was so amazing, each hexagon shape that was made and
has a purpose for each space. 
Everything is in such perfect order with
Gods creation!

"Rose Petal Tea"


"Rose Petal Tea"
oil, 8x8"


I put this rose in a teacup and realized I should paint
this setup. I added the teabag and that's how I came up 
with the name.
You can use the petals to make tea, also with the rose hips.
The rose hips are the oval orange, red or purple fruits on pollinated 
roses.

"Geraniums and the Old Vintage Window"


"Geraniums and the Old Vintage Window"
oil, 11x14"


This old window caught my attention. I am attracted to
vintage, old worn out patina and this window had it all!
I also liked the outside window looking in and another 
window inside the interior looking out.
The house dates back to the early 1900's.

Love the light casting wonderful shadows on the porch.

but most of all through Christ.

I love going to the nursery and looking at all the beautiful 
flowers. I stroll the nursery until I find an area that would 
make a good painting and take a photo of it. 
This painting is one of them.
