I have been painting up a storm. Not always a good storm, but I’ve worked out a few problems. The top paintings are of a pear. It shows what a difference a background makes. I love that blue background on the first. It is the color that I painted my laundry room. The painting of the pear half I found to be very difficult. I just couldn’t get the right colors for the meat of the pear. They were both still fun to paint. The peony is one that I purchased from A Date with Iris (great flowers and art; you should visit). I love peonies, but I do find them challenging to paint. I love how the blue background came out on this one.
Okay, so now to my weakness. I have many, starting with chocolate, but by far my greatest is MANGO. I am very allergic to this oh so very delicious treat, but I have learne…

My Art in Oklahoma

You can now view my paintings at A Date with Iris. Andrea McMillan told me about this beautifully charming little flower shop on Western Ave. I went and fell in love. You can find gifts (including oil paintings by me) and the most exquisite flowers you've ever seen.
My jewelry is found at A Jeweler's Art in the Paseo Art's District. Next week I will include more dangly enameled jewelry.
