"Fresh Coffee"
6"x6" acrylic on panel
I'm a little behind on the 30 paintings in thirty days, but things happen, like stuffy noses and well... you know. Guess I'll have to lay out a bunch of panels and  paint them all at once!!

At least the weather is nice.  : )

"Second Chance" - Sold

6"x6" acrylic on panel
Do you ever start a painting and it really turns out differently than you thought? This is an example.

It was done from a still life, but the flower was leaning left, not up. I rotated the canvas when I finished the first time and it just did't look right... so I turned it and added the vessel and...
gave myself a second chance!!

Stay warm, it's January!
