The Blooming Artist Gallery

I was unable to make the opening reception for this show because my husband and I were vacationing in Italy. When I went today to see the show, I was surprised to see one of my paintings in the front window, three others were in the gallery.  It looked good. Thank you The Blooming Artist Gallery.

                                                         Great show!

Italy Summer 2022 - Rome, Florence and Venice

There were so many beautiful paintings and sculptures in these three cities it was hard to decide which to post, so I decided to post images of these cities' monuments and buildings. I'm including a couple images of our food, one of our fun Spritz drinks and a memorable gondola ride. We loved it.

March Drawings

 I continue to draw almost everyday. It hasn't resulted in a painting, but what's nice is that I really enjoy it. Here are some of my sketches.

Turnip, Scallions and Lime

This was one of those paintings that painted itself. I didn't rework it and was satisfied with the first take. It's nice when that happens.

Working on my sketches from Sarah's online Still Life class


I've been drawing almost everyday. It's something I enjoy and can do within 30 minutes. Hopefully this leads to me routinely doing thumbnail sketches prior to painting.
