Day 27 - Text Me… Don’t Call Me

I couldn’t figure out what to paint today… I thought about flowers in my garden and photographed many while hubby planted tulip bulbs for me… hmmmm… what was I using to capture my garden: my smartphone! I LOVE my squared cornered checkered case! Why not paint it…


What did snap pictures of…

LOVE my garden! Lots of INSPIRATION there! I’m sure it will be the subject of many of my blog post in the future… BUT will inspire me to paint tomorrow?

P.S. The words on my journal post are  from Blondie’s song CALL ME… I hate talking on the phone so I changed it to TEXT ME!

Day 25 - It’s Friyay

I thought I would tell a little story… storyboard style…


 











I saw two photos: tulips in a glass and a glass housing a cocktail…



Ohhhhh… both pretty… I had the urge to paint them BUT I needed a twist: Tulips out of the glass to a vase however I never got around to drawing a vase for them… The cocktail turned into a mocktail with my FAVORITE (only one I consume) ginger beer and I’m not a lemon fan… soooo I switched it for a lime and one of my essential ooh la la items; a large square ice cube—love them!



And that’s how you get what you want!!!
What will Saturday show me that I just HAVE TO PAINT???

Day 23 - FAB Shoes… Get ALL Colors

I ADORE shoes andddddd I especially LOVE when I find FABuLOUS flat shoes… affordable I buy several colors!!!


 











I saw these shoes and had to paint them… a little different: I chose to make a black and gold pair instead of the burgundy one they show in their photo…



What will I paint tomorrow? 
More fashion?
I have no idea! 



Good Life Parisian Style

See how this painting was created in the video below…






I wish I could add music to this video like I do on Instagram… if I could you would be listening to “Good Life” by One Republic!

Day 22 - Bird of Paradise

TODAY I painted early = an earlier blog post…

For my day’s inspiration I saw a few photos of Bird of Paradise on the line  (credit to Vince Vaughn’s words for online in The Internship movie—so funny!)… giggling… correction: online 




Hubby’s comment to my painting was “I want one!” He loves tropical gardens and I am more whimsical butterfly/hummingbird jungle… some would call my landscape design English gardenish… I just know I love it! Anddddddd… I did design a portion of our garden with succulents (they are actually mixed in here and there) and tropical plants which a Bird of Paradise when be perfect in… soooooo maybe we will get one: garden nursery trip!

What will be my inspiration for tomorrow?



PRINT: Le Café Crème

I recently was asked if I could make a PRINT of my original painting Le Café Crème… My answer was of course but which version do you want?

The Updated Version…

She selected The Original and I printed it for her…

Time for an Edit

I'm sooooo please how this painting turned out...




















When I originally painted it... filming the process... I was uncertain about the table color choice... first I made it brown and then covered it with red... Recently I was uploading artwork to show the painting as a frameable art card and I just couldn't keep the RED TABLE as seen below...




















I'm sure my repaint was a right move... I love how the table reflect colors in the drapery and I think the lemons stand out better... it is titled: Lemons in Paris...





















NOW in My Art Shop!!! 


Day 13 - Invasion... Johnny Jump Ups

A beautiful sun shiny day inspired me to paint outside...





















Cute little Johnny Jump Ups (Violas formally) growing wildly between the bricks in my driveway (they are actually sprouting up all over: in flowerbeds, in rock beds and pots with other plants too) captured my attention...



















I was going to paint the flowers big and minimal brick but they are so tiny... so cute... I wanted to paint them as they are...





















What's next? What will I find interesting tomorrow?



April 15, 2023

Day 12 - Delicious Apple... Dessert

Apples with caramel sauce and ice cream was mentioned in my house by my son... hmmm... apple turnovers said hubby... what do we have? Crescent rolls, apples, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and cream cheese... Baked Yum! was how it turned out...
















I don't like how my painted apple turned out... but I like the composition idea...



What will I sketch and paint tomorrow?
