This and That

A few paintings that I have been working on this weekend. The fall leaves journal entry was more about therapy than anything else. I am grieving over my dearest friends struggle for life. The pears are a WIP. I'm not sure where to go with these,so instead of rushing impulsively along I am waiting and thinking.The painting is inspired by a Harry and David Catalog.

Lastly,the paper weight is a possible gift, maybe Christmas. I bought a few of these last year thinking I would do this and never got around to it. Inspired by John Derian http://http//

The last flowers from the garden

This started out as a much larger painting than it is now. As I was working on this I decided to use a 5x7 mat and work inside of it. It was an interesting process. As I continued to look at the painting I just couldn't resist adding pastel and watercolor crayon and pencil.

I guess I am developing or working on a style.

As I was painting this I thought the title should be- Don't forget the fuchsia and momma loves lime green.
