February Flower #15



Happy Monday!!!!  Flower painting #15 is done!  I remain three days behind in my challenge.  I'm hoping to gain some ground this week and finish a couple extra to get caught up.  This is a smaller one....it's an 8" x 8" wooden plaque with an edge around it.  It's mostly scribbles with pastels, and a touch here and there with acrylics.  I'm going to give the frame a glossy finish, and seal the body of the piece with heavy beeswax for depth.

February Flower #14


Hi guys!  I've completed February flower painting #14!  This is a skinny stretched canvas that measures 8" x 24".  I originally thought I would use a vertical orientation for the canvas...but then settled on the challenge of painting on it horizontally, which turned out to be a lot of fun.  This would be a cute piece to have over a doorway or window....and is just a fun size to fill in a quirky wall space.  I'm loving that navy background too.

February Flower #13


February Flower painting #13 is done! I'm making friends with the color violet. It's creeping into several things I'm working on these days. And I love it! This is a 9"x12"-ish thin wood panel, with an attached narrow frame around the outside. Baby, it's cold outside, but the sun is shining, so we will carry on another day!!! Cheers and happy Saturday!

February Flower #12


Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  This week flew by!!!  We had a little burst of warm air for a couple of days...but it's dipped back into the single digits again.  So I'm hunkered down in the studio, painting away.  February flower painting #12 is complete!  This one was fun!  I love the corals and pinks!  Makes me happy!  It's a 12" square canvas panel tucked into a painted wooden frame.  Hope you are all doing great!  More to come!  XOXO!!!!

February Flower #11


I told you it was a busy day in the studio....Ha!  This is February flower #11!!  A 12" square canvas panel tucked into a painted wooden frame.  I've been looking at a lot of fun folk art images...and this colorful tulip emerged from that influence.  Mostly acrylics and pastels were used.    

February Flower #10


Happy Tuesday, guys!!!  It was a busy day in the studio today, and I completed February flower painting #10!  This is another old project that never was completed....so I painted over it and created something new.  It's a 20" square canvas, and the white blooms popping off of that orange background just make me smile.  Hope you are staying warm and cozy, friends.  It's another blustery day here in Iowa.

February Flower #9


Howdy pals!!!  Happy Monday!!!  Here's February Flower #9!  It's a 12" square canvas panel inside a painted wooden frame.  I wish you could see it up close.  There are layers of collage/old book pages peeking through the acrylics and pastel.  I had fun with these little posies.

I am a little behind in my challenge....but it looks like Mother Nature has some more snow and ice in store for us.  I'll be hunkered down in the studio for the next couple of days....so I hope to have more to share with you shortly!  Cheers!!!!
