Geraniums and more geraniums.

  My French Geraniums  20 x 20 oil on canvas

This painting will be available at the Painted Garden art show
at Beach Gallery in Va. Beach, Va. on April 5th. I'll 
announce details closer to the opening.  It will be running in conjunction
with Historic Garden Club week.

To warm up for the painting I did a small version that is available now
in auction format via the link below the painting.  Each painting 
turns out uniquely and there are qualities that I like about each one.
I'm curious which one you prefer?

This was a cure for the winter blues and
to capture the warm feeling of sunlight on my back.

Double, double, toil and trouble....

Happy Hour  9 x 12 sold

The genie has popped out of the bottle and she's not gonna fit back in.

Secretly in my hidden French laboratory, I've been working on a magic potion to enhance
creative powers.  I've experimented with many different ideas and had some recent successes with a particular formula I'd like to share with you:

two parts your favorite beverage
one part violet liqueur
stir with magic = delight!

It's best if your favorite beverage is light and clear, even bubbly.
But it's the violet liqueur from Alzace that turns it into a wonderful
purple concoction.
It is widely known:
Most everything with a splash of lavender is downright delightful.
Works like a charm!

Window Filled With Color

Window Filled With Color  20 x 20

After and extended holiday where I took a break, I'm back to
painting and loving every minute. I didn't do absolutely nothing,
I did lie around alot and read books about 
goal setting and achievement.

I received a Fitbit for Christmas (that wirelessly tracks your activity level)
and that might have been a hint for someone special;)
It actually thought I was in a coma for a while and would
have called in a medical alert if it could have.

I'm re-energized and ready to create a wonderful 2014.
Hope you are too!

PS- prints for my European friend should go out the first of next week.

Lulu  8x8 oil on museum board

I did this painting for my friend, and fellow dog enthusiast, artist Steve Cook.
Earlier this year Steve captured a wonderful memory
in paint for me of Robi and I riding on the ferry
from Sicily to the Italian mainland.  I wanted to say thank you 
by painting his puppy Lulu for him.
I just loved this photo of her, in her 'bling' on the beach,
enjoying herself.

Green Cabin

Green Cabin  8x8 oil on board

There is a campground near my house with small cabins for rent painted
in different colors.  Most of the people that visit are Dutch, who 
find summer and fall in Burgundy quite warm.

The green one really caught my eye against the colorful leaves.
