Notecards work today

Well today is what I call a notecard day. I sell them in boutiques and little shops and I am overdue to put some new ones out there. I'll leave you with sample cards called "Apple a Day" and "Let's Visit".

Carnation - NFS

Single carnation in a blue vase. I love the colors in this and the loose painterly feel. Hope you enjoy it as well cause it was terrific fun to paint.

Boating - SOLD

Boating is a rendering the last days of easy breezy summer. Quiet waters, relaxing... Oh how nice before the holidays begin with a furiously fast pace.

Beachy Keen - SOLD

It's nearing the end of summer now, but there's still some time left to catch some rays and just plain relax before holidays abound once again. This is definitely a lovely reminder to take time to smell the sea salt air! ps - I love how loose this is, my fav kind of thing.

Radical Radishes - NFS

So here's the story on the title for this one with hopefully some humor thrown in. All of the radishes were huddling in a bunch, tied together, trying to escape when suddenly the rubber band snapped! Three of them got loose and ran for it... from habit, they huddled once again, this time radicals and free! As Hendrix would say, freedom - give it to me.

Pass the Cream and Sugar Please - SOLD

Ok, so I love coffee although I do love Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade on a hot day. I actually made myself a delightful cup a java before getting started on this really fun piece. I like simple layouts most of the time. I don't like clutter in my house or studio either, it bothers my peace and gets dusty. So again, like my profile says, I try to keep it simple, but love those colors...

Beached - SOLD

I've just added a new piece of work to my brand new Etsy store titled "Beached". It's a beach (ha) scene of a beached boat in a moorish type of setting. I like how this painting turned out. I like the colors, etc basically I think I nailed it, but hey that's how it's got to be. I have to paint for me or as David Leffel would say regarding motivation. "Beauty... the fun of trying to get it down... the fun of trying to get better." I hope you agree! Btw, please visit my shop when you have time.

Sitting Pretty - NFS

Love has caught my heart and I just have to show it to cuteness lovers everywhere... so precious. Btw, the photography compliments of Scott M. Liddell.
