$80 - 5x7" original watercolour painting in 8x10"mat
Painting Spots! Such a blast! I don't get the opportunity to paint polka dots that often so when I saw Dottie (of course that's her name), I wanted to paint her immediately. Dalmatian's rock. ; )
If you've got a pet, or a friend with a pet, email me some photos and I'll get painting. #greatgift

crunchy shine


6x6" original oil painting on 3/4" panel

Well, that's the second spoon I ever painted! (The first was from a Carol Marine reference photo and this one is from a Sarah Sedwick photo). Reflections in silver are always fun, like the green apples, but this time there's a kick on light on the inside of the creamer! Every painting brings a new little somethin'-somethin' to the game. ; )

$120 - 6x6" oil painting on 3/4"panel

A little snack and a deep breath of fresh air. Ahh... summertime. It's time to sit down with a cup of tea and a crisp apple. And enjoy a painting of the same. ; ) Heehee.

I used a photo from the generous Sarah Sedwick again (thanks Sarah!) and I changed it again too. This time I added an extra apple slice instead of the creamer. The apples are one big happy family.

These cherries are checking out their reflections! 
There was originally a spoon in this photo reference, but I took it out and added cherries to match the lovely reds in the jelly. Thanks to Sarah Sedwick for her generosity - she's always supplying awesome photos to work from.

Three Umbrellas

8x10" original oil painting on 3/4" panel
I've always liked the little cocktail umbrellas that adorn 'fancy', sometimes silly, drinks. So here they are! Painting their shadows was just as fun as painting them. As well as a cool bird. Looking into the cup and red vase was tricky, but I like the circular shapes they make. A few cherries and Voila!

Berry Dots

8x10" oil painting on 3/4" panel with sides painted to match. 
Today's aerial view, or flat lay, includes a sprig of mint in the tea cup. I put down some different coloured papers to jazz it up. Then I found some 'like minded' objects and brewed a cuppa tea! ; )
