Just One Apple

An apple a day..............you know the rest.

Just one apple from many on a piece that hangs in my
neighbor´s kitchen. I go visit it once in awhile.

An acrylic apple for Daily Paintworks.

While cleaning up my studio...yes, I do that once in
a great while,....I found some dried up, leftover paint rags.

Of course I had to use them for something so I ripped them into
small squares.

Found some papers for layering.......

and they turned into some quote cards.
That was fun,,,especially the ripping part.

Have a great start to your week ahead.

I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday.

Pears are one of my favorite things to paint.

Pears are one of my favorite things to eat....next to apples of course.

The best thing about painting pears is that when you are finished
you can devour the evidence.

I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday.

Full Speed Ahead

Everything is blue in this batch of cards.

ok, the pink batch tried to wittle their way in....

It´s all hearts and using up my paper stash.

I am partial to blue and brown together..

If you want more blue and brown inspiration go have a look at
The Chocolate Blues....that will surely give you a good dose
of these two colors together. Maybe you prefer blue all on it´s
lonesome. How about beautiful Turquoise?

Have a nice Thursday!

A few snaps of the goings on in my laboratory.

Now you know what I am up to when my blog is all quiet and you don´t
