Peony Painting

Finally, I pushed myself to get this one off the easel, I had started this one a month or so back but left it sitting there and I got totally disconnected with this painting. Lately, I find myself to have an inconsistent attention span, I want to do everything and my painting gets pushed back, … Continue reading Peony Painting

30-day challenge update – day 2

It's been a week and I had originally painted day 2 of the 30-day challenge but did not post because I had company, my daughter's birthday and being distracted with the event.  The lonely Shallot was painted in 2 hours, I had a hard time with it especially the translucency of the skin. I will … Continue reading 30-day challenge update – day 2

The Best Mascarpone Brownies.

Yes, they are! Really they are, they're the love child of a moist Brownie and a Tiramisu, they are absolutely delectable and best of all...they are super easy to make.

I tried placing some of my work in a coop gallery but only lasted there 3 months - it … Continue reading It’s been a while…

My new website…

Well, along with my gardening and all my Halloween decor that I've been caught up in, I had the brilliant idea to consolidate my website, blog and store and to make it worse change the hosting company.  This meant that I had to start from scratch for my website but now I had more theme … Continue reading My new website…

Fresh off the easel…

This painting was finished 2 days ago but due to hurricane Irma preparation, I have not been able to post. Currently, Irma is kicking South Florida's butt and as I receive the play by play from my mother who is currently going through it and is experiencing 100+ winds I needed to get my mind … Continue reading Fresh off the easel…

Fresh off the easel…

So... for several weeks now I have been working casually on a painting that really reminds me of my father, he fell in love with the songs and lyrics of this artist that my husband introduced him to and as his medical condition worsen and cancer continued its path of destruction he would listen to … Continue reading Fresh off the easel…
