Lemons with Blue Wooly Curls

OK – so, I haven’t exactly painted in awhile.  But there’s always new beginnings in life – so here we go again!!  Hope you like this one.  What else should I paint if its been awhile?? – LEMONS of course.  Have I told you before that the Lemon subject matter is my most popular sell?  In fact, just sold a lemon painting last week, which of course inspired me to break out the lemons again.  But this one has the addition of Blue Wooly Curls.  You know what those are, right?  Google them if you don’t.

One Bougainvillea Overboard

Bougainvillea and Bottles, Original Oil Painting, 6 x 6

This painting flowed like no other.  I like the colors and the way the Bougainvillea crimsons just popped the painting.  The angular bottle is a thrift store find and I scavenged the antique oil bottle from an old dump site near Evergreen, Colorado.  The Bougainvillea came from the yard next door…

Lucky Bird in Paradise

Inspired from an afternoon of painting with my friend Tara – this Crane Flower emerged.  My sister Amy says they are weeds, and she is right about that – once they take hold, they’re everywhere – but oh so beautiful.  

When I ran my art school, I must have drawn hundreds of these with my students, so the “bird” comes easy to me.  You can find this one for sale in my HobsonFineArt  shop on  Everyone needs a Bird of Paradise gracing the wall – don’t you think?
