This is my favorite time of year when everything’s in bloom! Thought it was appropriate to post some flowers – colorful and fun. These were done with my oil bars.

Starting Work On the Garden

We got a new tiller yesterday because our old one gave us all she’s got. So now we are ready to get our little garden ready and plant some yummy veggies! I LOVE being about to go to the grocery store in my own back yard :)! Granted we have a limited variation in our “grocery store” but I love that I can at least make a salad and salad dressing from my small garden with the veggies and herbs. Here’s a quick painting I did of some of the tomatoes in our garden last year. I did it more in a sketch book style – I like doing this from time to time.

These are just a few of the MANY paintings I’ll have for sale today.

Here are three buttercup paintings I did in the spring from flowers off our property. The earliest house I remember living in when I was little had buttercups down the property line and I loved them as a little girl and love them still today. We’ve been planting big batches of them around our pond each fall. They were fun to paint too! You can tell the first painting is my earliest buttercup painting because it doesn’t have very thick paint on it. The little russian doll container I use to hold my salt in my kitchen. The last painting is my favorite.
