Half a Dozen Eggs, Original Oil Painting, 6 x 6 inches

Saturday’s Painting:  Rose brought these beautiful eggs to me – from her Granddaughter’s chickens. So I HAD to paint them of course, before eating them. Creamy yellow, a bluish celadon green, and more traditional cocoa brown – sooo beautiful and sooo fun to mix the colors to match!  CLICK HERE for purchase and pricing information.

Anandamayi Ma

Anadamayi Ma, Original Oil Painting, 8 x 10

Anandamayi Ma, Original Oil Painting, 8 x 10

Last Sunday’s painting – have lived with Anandamayi Ma’s portrait all week and she is especially intriguing in the night light…kind of a glow to her.    My friend, Paula, has encouraged me to paint her, and I must say I truly enjoyed it.  This portrait is my first attempt to capture a likeness of “Sri Ma”.  She lived in India from 1896 to 1982 and had and continues to have a following of devotees.  It is said that “she was the embodiment of a joyous self-sufficiency, which enraptured the hearts of all who came near her”. CLICK HERE for purchase and pricing info.
