AWOL on my Blog



Santa Tea Light 6x6 oil $125 available at Homegrown Arts & Crafts
Technology. Love it or hate it it's here to stay. My computer is experiencing some issue that causes it to freeze up after it runs for about 5-7 minutes. I've run every diagnostic test that I know of and can't remedy the problem. I don't think I have to tell any of you how stressful and upsetting computer problems are, so please bear with me here while I work it out and if anyone wants to email me with suggestions or advice. I'm listening. Meanwhile check out my work at Homegrown Arts and Crafts in Duxbury on St. George Street. Such a wonderful little shop with many beautiful and unique gift items.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

Frosty Kisses (win this painting) :D

The Winner of this painting is Karen Jenks!!!
 'Tis the season to give presents and this painting is up for grabs. The hitch? If you are already a  subscriber to my blog, send me an email  confirming that. If you are not a subscriber (yet) go to the little box on the right and subscribe and then send me an email and your name will also go into the "hat" for the drawing. IMPORTANT: put 'win this painting' in the subject line.  I will put all the names in a "hat" and draw one on Tuesday. Because my subscription service gives me no information other than the number of subscribers, I'm going to be switching to a new service and I want to take you all with me and reward you at the same time! :D
I hope all of you are having a wonderful Holiday Season however you celebrate and that, and I KNOW this is a REACH, we all carry the loving caring spirit that we feel during this time of year along with us as we head into 2012. What the world needs now is Love.... where have I heard that?

Stacked Jelly

Kelly and Susan are usually slamming each other with jelly on Donut Mondays but today Kelley did a beautiful rainbow sprinkle number while Susan painted a fabulous chocolate frosted on a nifty patterned plate. I just ripped a jelly in half and stacked one piece on top of the other and then stuck a munchkin in there just for fun. I have a plethora of reds and was able to get these glorious glowing tones in my jelly using Thalo Red Rose, Quinacridone Red and Quinacridone Magenta mixed with Cad Yellow Med for that hot orange. I like to sneak up on the donut girls, unexpectedly. Guerrilla Donut Wars, you might say.

Commercial Street, Provincetown

8x8 oil on gatorboard $135.00 & $10.00 S&H





This is a painting I started a few weeks ago and was finally able to get back to the few little touches it needed. I initially thought that the figures were the focal point but it looks like I really, really love the red storefront (I do). It's up to you to decide. Today's studio work ended up being a wiper but I can start it again tomorrow. Think candy.
