Commission - "Frankie"

"Frankie", the kitty cat, was such a cute subject to paint.  I have always loved calico cats and this one was beautiful.  I ended up painting it on a 6x6 in canvas and set it up on a little easel that complimented it nicely.

This is a pic I took of a commissioned painting just before I finished it.  I ended up making a few minor changes, and the camera didn't quite capture the colors correctly, so it came out a bit different then what is seen here.  The owner takes great care and pleasure in his landscaping and it shows!  It must be my day for technical problems because I also just tried to import the last painting I did of a cute little cat named Frankie, and it wouldn't cooperate!  Well, mabey sometime soon I will figure it out and be able to post it.

Lemons on a Blue Plate

8x10 acrylic
I love the way lemons remind me of summer days.  Just painting them in the middle of winter gives me back those warm summer memories of making fresh lemonade with my kids. Every time I bring lemons home, I put them in a bowl on the counter to admire for a few days before the kids help me juice them.  I also love the way the glass pitcher of lemonade looks, with plenty of  lemon slices and ice - mabey I'll have to paint that sometime...
