I want to revive my “Tuesday’s Treasure Chest” blog posts which I started a long time ago, but got out of the habit (sorry, I’ve neglected by blog and post frequently on Facebook). Let’s do this, I’ll start by sharing THREE terrific things that I treasure………..
First I’ll start with something you might not know about me, in the last year I’ve become an Artist-in residence (kind of). I had the opportunity to trade paintings for Ocean Isle Beach lodging. What did I paint? A mermaid, of course! The beach has long been a treasure of mine, I grew up seven miles from the Atlantic Coast. I’m looking for Artist-in-residence programs, haha.

Here comes the bride, well at least her shoes. I enjoyed painting “Jessica’s Wedding Shoes” after attending her fabulous wedding. Years ago Jessica and her family lived in our neighborhood, my how time flies, leaving treasured neighborhood memories.

Drawing is becoming a treasured and renewed passion of mine, here’s a new mermaid teapot drawing, thinking of painting it, what do you think? Carolina Artists’ Colony is having The Great Teapot Extravaganza in a couple of weeks so I better get busy if I want to enter.

I will learn discipline by doing this painting challenge for sure. I have a hard time being in the painting zone when I have a zillion other things to do too.
Teacups are beautiful, the curved slope of the handle, the open circular rim, and the curved sloping sides of the teacup are so delicate. I love how the fragile cup makes a tinkling sound as I place it on the saucer.
I named this little painting “My English Friend”.

I painted this little rabbit as a Christmas gift for a friend to give to her lovely friend. When the recipient received her gift she titled it “Kringle Toes”.
What a pleasure it has been this Christmas to have the honor of creating paintings that have a special meaning for my clients and their friends and families.

The palette knife lends itself to a thicker impasto style painting and I love the fresh juicy paint look. Artist Leslie Saeta is posting a challenge on her blog to help artists show their work and to practice their skills, it’s called thirty paintings in thirty days. I painted this pear as a practice piece. Anyway, I’m thinking about joining this challenge and just wanted your thoughts, do you think I can paint thirty paintings in thirty days? Your comments and encouragement are most welcome, leave me a comment below. Thanks!
