6x6 oil on canvas board
I started this painting at a Community Garden event last Saturday.
I got busy visiting with friends and didn't complete it, so
I finished it in the studio yesterday.
I love clipping these beautiful flowers and bringing them inside.
Thought they would look good in a blue ball jar.
I decided to use this for my Facebook Free Give Away
for the month of June. Each month I have a drawing for a painting.
I got the idea from another artist's blog, and I loved it!
I have made so many new friends this way.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!

By the Lake
14x11, oil on canvas
I was thrilled to learn that "Two Friends" from yesterday's post
was selected as one of the Dailypaintworks FB Daily picks!
This painting was done by a friend's photo of her brother's
view of Smith Mountain Lake.
What a view!
Can only imagine morning coffee on the porch.
I enjoyed playing with the water reflections.
I hope you are having a wonderful day,
and thanks again for stopping by.

I love painting these fat little guys.
I normaly use oils, but tried acrylics today just to compare texture.
I love the buttery texture of oil paint,
but can appreciate the quick drying time for the acrylics.
This weekend I am participating in a Garden Event,
painting flowers and vegetables in the garden.
Should be lots of fun!
Hope you enjoy my little birds,
I can paint different colors if you would like.
Thanks for stopping by!
