Often when I ask my husband, "What does this painting need?" he answers, "You should paint a bird in it." So, when he saw this painting he liked it immediately. "Finally," he said, "you painted some birds."

I really enjoyed shaping these tomatoes with brushstrokes of color. It seemed like less work than it did to paint some tomatoes from my garden from a photo that I took a month a go. That surprised me. I thought a photo would always be easier. (The basket is a sweetgrass basket from Charleston, SC)

I was so excited to see that there are peppers still growing in my garden! Soon after I started painting this it seemed that it was not going to work out at all. I just threw caution to the wind and put down bold strokes. Voila! It looks a little Van Gogh-ish, and I like it.

I'm just going to post some of the paintings I have done in the last YEAR AND A HALF since I've posted anything.
Just in the last couple of months I have become interested in the daily painting movement. These next paintings are small (5x5 or 6x6) and were mostly done in one sitting--around and hour or two.
