Two Zinnias


8x10 oil on canvas panel
Haven't posted in a while but I've been busy.  I'm getting ready to put my paintings in The Market at Serendip in Powell, Ohio.  Many artists are represented in this shop.  I'm excited about this opportunity to get my art out.  It was very reassuring to have an artist and the curator share their positive comments about my work.

Hydrangea


8x10 oil on canvas panel

This is really my favorite flower!  Nature's exquisite color palette!
I have recently sold three of my paintings and I am thrilled.  This is such a confidence booster for me.  What an awesome feeling that someone enjoys your view and representation of this amazing world. 
This weekend, my husband and I went to a cruise-in in a small town in Ohio.  We showed one of our cars, a red '64 Corvette.  Anyway,  they have this shop there that exhibits artists' work.  I want to research further to see if this might be a path I would like to take.  I'm doing well selling online and need much more inventory of paintings than I have right now to do both.  I need to get busy, don't I?

I'm back to doing still lifes.   I plan on working with different compositions, paint mixing, looser brushstrokes, ...  Got some work ahead :) but I do really enjoy painting flowers.
