In hindsight I see some things a little askew with this one. But hopefully they're askew in a cute way? (grin)

A Run on the Bowl

Couldn't they see the bowl was too small? I wanted to say something but I figured it was their lesson to learn.

Off to See the Wizard

At my grocery store they seem to always have a few containers of these little apples. I think they're adorable. And what's more, they are always happy to pose for me.

The Yellow Bleed

This is one I kept on my own wall for a while. Now I've replaced it with a new favorite and am ready to let this one go.

Well, the roses convinced me they needed to finish with a bang, so here they are, numbers 12, 13 and 14! Give it up.

Roses Forward

We are now at 11 of the dozen! Just one more. How will he pose?

Three for Ye


Click Here to Bid - 6x6in. - oil - "Three for Ye"

Including these 3 roses, I have now painted 8 of the dozen. I used a different light for this one - a softer LED rather than the flood bulb I often use. It makes the transitions more subtle, and the shadow edges softer.

Two Poses

I'm imagining these two at the Oscars, posing for the cameras in their "naked dresses". How scandalous!

Oh, Which Dress to Choose


Click Here to Bid - 6x6in. - oil - "Oh, Which Dress to Choose"

I read an article this morning about the Oscars and what people wore. Apparently the big hit was the "naked dress." Which is what this rose is considering. I guess you would call it a very fashionable rose.

Cutting Roses

I haven't painted roses in a while, so I bought myself a dozen. And my goal is to paint all 12. : ) Two down...

Lust for Limes

Another piggy and more limes. I like it when my pigs get a hankering for something in my studio. The drama is quite entertaining.

Herding Limes

I have been looking back at old paintings and getting inspired by them. I did one similar to this back in 2009. That was before the fire, so I had different pigs, and I'm pretty sure the limes were those mini ones.

According to the traditional color wheel, red and green are complementary. Therefore, Christmas.

Solo Egg

This is my last egg for now. We currently have a proliferation of limes in the house (don't ask) so I'll be painting a few of those next.

I can't believe I haven't used this title yet. Especially since I've done 85 egg paintings so far! Insane.

My husband and I have been talking recently about the possibility of offering prints of old paintings for sale. Before I invest in something like that I would love to get your feedback. Please let me know if this is something you'd be interested in. The next question will be which paintings, but I'm not ready for that yet. : )

Good news! I didn't die from the questionable egg I ate yesterday. And the ones I had this morning were just fine. No, I don't eat the ones I paint - they sit out too long. Just one weird egg in all my 44 years. Hopefully it will never happen again.

For Forks Sake


Click Here to Bid - 6x6in. - oil - "For Forks Sake"

More eggs, different setting. And a short story about breakfast - I have eggs for breakfast almost every morning. I've gotten really good at cooking them perfectly over-easy (my favorite). This morning as I sat down to eat I noticed a funny smell that I hadn't noticed when I was cooking. I thought - do my eggs always smell this way, and I only just noticed? But the first bite tasted like the smell, which wasn't terrible, but not "right." Sadly I threw it all away and ate something different. And now I'm hesitant to eat eggs tomorrow. Have you ever come across a commercial egg that looked perfectly fine but wasn't? I've probably eaten thousands of eggs in my life, and this is the first time. Hopefully I don't die...

Fork Over Easy


Click Here to Bid - 6x6in. - oil - "Fork Over Easy"

Usually the thing that prompts me to paint a series (of a particular subject) is a kind of calling. That subject says - hey! Paint me! And I can't resist. But this time the prompt was someone in my house (not naming names) buying a bunch of eggs when we already had a bunch. They barely fit in the fridge. So I had to do something about it.
