Day 3 for September 2015 "30 in 30"

acrylic on canvas

I bought these little tiny canvases sometime ago and rediscovered them this morning. I thought this might be a good exercise in getting something done in an hour and it was! My niece Aimee is a great photographer and I owe her for this reference image.

Pale Rose; A Close Up Study

acrylic on panel

I am in the "30 in 30" challenge this month, hosted by Leslie Saeta. This painting has kept me busy for a couple of days. I count it for day 1 and 2. The title could easily be changed to "Pale Rose; A Close Up Struggle!"

Thanks for checking in! I'll be painting everyday but probably won't post everyday. We'll see how many paintings I can complete in September while I get ready for a show and work on commissions :-).

Dinner Party

"Dinner Party" was inspired by one of the many family gatherings we attend. I love getting candid moments that speak to the everyday experience.

This painting will be available through the Studio Art Gallery in San Francisco starting on August 27th. This is a group show titled "Delicious".  Come join me on August 30th for the reception!

We are all sending positive messages to our long time colleague at work while she undergoes cancer treatment. Her favorite flower is the purple iris. These are for you Carmen.
