Selfish Daughter- New Painting

Completed on 10-31- The name for this painting came from a song I was listening when I started.   The song  just struck a chord with me.  Sometimes songs, poetic lyrics are so perfect. I am quite excited about this painting.  I feels  luminous,  magical and moody.   16x12 on a cradled birch wood panel with painted sides.  TO view on my website click the link- 
BTW~  Happy Halloween!

Part Of The Arrangement II- New painting SOLD

Completed on 10-24.  This piece is 16x12 painted on a cradled wood panel.  I love to paint flowers with a Flemish flair.  It 's wonderful that my art is being purchased as gifts for others.  
There is a chill in the air and the trees are wrapping up their color show.  I am taking a short trip out to California.  A few of my sisters and I are visiting my nephew whose documentary is being shown in a film festival in LA and then we head to San Francisco to see my little brother professor/fiction writer.  Should be interesting !
Thanks for stopping by.

Sleep Study ~III New painting - SOLD

Completed on 10-18.  Sleep Study III  is 12x16 painted on a birch wood cradled panel with painted sides.  I love this color combination.  Sleep is a recurring theme in my work.  I guess if I paint others sleeping than some  how my son Sam will sleep too.  I believe in "willing things"  and the law of attraction so who knows, maybe this time! 
Anyway, this painting is available through my website and etsy shop as well as Daily Painters.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes yesterday ! 
I am putting together a holiday note card collection in the coming days for a limited time.  More details this week.

Ornamental Orchestra - New painting

Completed on 10-11.  Ornamental Orchestra just popped into my head as a title for my newest painting.  I would love a secret nook like this behind dramatic red drapes. Speaking of  drapes- the curtain closed on another season for the Red Sox last night and it wasn't pretty.  I hope you are enjoying the fall weather and foliage where ever you may be.

What I'm working on

Started a new piece yesterday.  Just the under painting shown here so far but it's moving along quickly today. It's time for me to paint and a deer.  The fall leaves are really starting to pop now.  This is such a beautiful time of year.    14x18

What's Going On. New painting

Completed on 10-4- I've had a 9x12 wood panel in my studio for a while and thought it might be time  to do so a few small pieces in between my larger scale paintings.  The two red spheres or marbles actually have meaning.  My son Sam has developed an obsession with them .  A total sensory thing so naturally I bought A LOT of them because when you have a child ( young adult) with autism anything they take an interest in is huge! They can be found all over my house now rolled into every corner! The cats are thrilled but if you step on one it can be very dangerous!.  
Anyway, this is my new piece in keeping with the seasons. 9x12 with painted sides.  I have a few customer who buy my paintings as gifts for weddings, special birthdays, anniversary's .  Most people don't think of buying original art as a gift but it really is a lovely gesture.  Christmas is not too far away as well. 
for sale on my website.
