  20. You do WONDERFUL work on your paintings! It would be a hard decision. If I won I think I would chose the figs - at least I think that is what they are! I have been remodeling my kitchen and want to build banquet seating with a storage ledge behind the seats to store large framed photos to change out during the year. Something like the figs or the tea would be cute on an easel sitting on the ledge!

  29. I'm a big fan of the beverage painting. (Ice cold sweet tea? Coca-Cola? I don't know, but both sound great to me!) Way to go, pursuing an additional creative outlet.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi. I'm a follower! (as of Friday, I think...maybe I was #200!) Beautiful paintings! My favourite is the one with the shell. Particularly because the background is dark and almost brooding, rather than the usually wishy-washy pale beachy blue.
