GET THEM WHILE THEY'RE HOT!


Welcome to Wednesday, folks....I hope your week is shaping up to be a good one!
Things in my own life have been pretty challenging and stressful in every area lately, but I am trying to focus on all I have to be thankful for, which is a lot.....
I believe that, ultimately, everything that happens in our lives is for a reason and that God can bring good out of all things. I apologize to my loyal commenters for being behind in responding. I promise to get back to you when everything has calmed down. 
I hope that will be sooner rather than later.

I happen to have 2 of these large 18x24 stretched canvases in my "Porcelain Jar on Pink" available to ship now for a special price here in my shop.  These are sure to bring a burst of Spring to your space!

LUXE-FUMES PAINTING NO. 3


I hope that you had a nice weekend! 
Today, I've got the third painting in my new "Luxe-Fumes" series for you. It's a French Creed fragrance - Fleurissimo - and is painted in painstaking detail with acrylic on wood gallery panel.  The background is done in a rich periwinkle blue strie. The original is for sale, and prints as well (for large posters by special order - contact me here.) These pieces are great for a bathroom, dressing room, heck, any area. Wouldn't it be great to give a friend a painting or print of their trademark fragrance? Go here to buy or get more details.


KIWI CAT


A very thoughtful customer of mine from New Zealand sent me this photo of her cat, "Professor Winston" showing me how he was trying to investigate when she opened the shipment from me. She said he showed his approval by promptly lying on the prints. I got a kick out of it. Thanks for the nod of approval, Professor Winston and thanks for passing this along, Robyn! 

MORE PARISIAN GOODIES

Happy Monday!
I had a busy weekend and was able to check quite a few items off my to-do list and I am regaining my footing as far as work goes. I am settling in and loving my new place - very efficient and comfortable. I also spent some time at my local garden center as I have decided to take another stab at growing tomatoes and am reading up on successful cultivation of heirloom varieties. Call me crazy, but the scent of tomato leaves is wonderful. If you have any tips, please feel free to share. I hope that you had a nice weekend, too!

"St. Honore" is the latest print on stretched canvas from my dessert series. It's from an original painting of a Parisian delicacy. It's available here.

BLUE & WHITE - A PERENNIAL CLASSIC


I hope that you enjoyed your weekend. I hope that all of the wonderful mothers out there had a very special Mother's Day.
Thanks to all of you for the comments and well wishes relating to my grandfather's passing. I just flew home last night and am a bit exhausted, but all of your support and concern means more than you could know! I received messages from people I haven't been in contact with since as far back as pre-school. There are no words to express my appreciation for each of you who took the time to write or comment. I truly am overwhelmed. THANK YOU!
I apologize for being a bit MIA, but will be able to catch up on correspondence, orders and comments this week.

For many of my customers who have requested more blue and white prints, there is now a stretched canvas version of the "Blue and White Ginger Jar". It's available in both an 8x10 and an 11x14 here.
Stay tuned as more new paintings will debut soon!  

NEW ENGLISH ROSES PRINT!




Can you believe that it's already Monday again? I hope that you had an enjoyable Spring weekend. I managed to get a little time outside when it was sunny and beautiful as well as later on chipping away at some work while it was raining cats and dogs!
I recently sold the original "English Roses on Aqua" painting, but now there's a print available in
I am offering it in an 8x10 or 11x14 on stretched canvas (pictured above). Think Mother's Day next month!

HAPPY SPRING!


I know that I am a few days past the "official" beginning of Spring, but in celebration of it's arrival, I wanted to introduce a new print to my shop. It's actually a vintage work, since it was completed before I was born (and I'm not exactly a preschooler anymore!)
It's my Father's work in pastel and I have always loved the bright florals and seaside setting. The couple depicted is supposed to be he and my mom.....back when they were carefree newlyweds. Mom is partially obstructed by the shrubbery and parasol, but she's enjoying the scenery! I am framing the original- given to me by my parents, and adding it to my gallery wall.
If you like it you can get your own giclee print, available here.

NEW SILHOUETTE CANVAS PRINT

Today I am introducing a new print on canvas in 2 different sizes.

It's a reproduction of my Aqua Louis Silhouette on Chocolate Brown.
This is a giclee print on matte canvas, stretched and mounted with finished edges (no visible staples) and a 3/4 inch profile. You can hang it directly on the wall, with no need for a frame.
More details are available here.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!

SWEET MONDAY

I hope that you had a good weekend! February is here (today!) and I am offering the first in a series of prints on canvas from a grouping of original dessert paintings that I have done in the last few years. It's a colorful collection that would look great in your kitchen or anywhere, for that matter.

The first (pictured above) is my 2007 version of a traditional Parisian "Religieuse" pastry on an orchid colored background complete with finished edges and ready to hang (no need for frame).
Available now in my shop. Look for more to come very soon.
