Half slices

One last cantaloupe composition that was waiting around to get painted. The fruit is going out of season, however the tree's are full of these colors.

Blue berries

This was an idea photographed earlier in the summer and it didn't seem right to let it go by without being painted.  Although painting from real life is so much better for learning to see my camera is used to make reference photo's at the same time.

Autumn rose

It had been over a year since my last visit to a florist and recently there has been two visit's in the last month. What a surprise to find another beautiful rose perfect for the fall season.

This is the last painting for this litter of kittens.  Each of these last three paintings were executed differently from each other.  What joy it was painting fur and those cute faces making each painting as individual as the kitten.

This kitten became our keeper. We intended him to be an outside cat like his mother only he likes it inside better.

Cautious kitty

Back in April we took in a homeless pregnant cat and what an adventure we had with her and the kittens.
