This is what I have been busy with this week! I am trying to get into the Fall spirit, although I am not looking forward to school starting. I won't have as much time to paint...since I work 4 days a week then. I really like how these paintings turned out. Especially the girl with 7 marshmallows on a stick. Three of them are waxed , one is antiqued and two of them I just varnished because the colors were so nice and bright. It is so hard to decide on how to finish them. I will be posting them throughout the weekend as I have time to upload pictures. I need to go outside now, my husband is putting a fence around my vegetable garden because the darn animals are eating all my tomatoes just as they ripen. He thinks the thieves are squirrels, but I am not sure, it could be deer or raccoons too. The tomatoes with bites out of them are about three feet off the ground. Anyone else have some suggestions?
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
