From the Farm
20x16 oil on canvas
This summer is my first experience being part of a CSA,
Community Supported Agriculture.
Every other week I go to visit my friend, Jennifer Farlow,
at her beautiful farm and pick up my box of
fresh produce. It is always a surprise and a joy to
see what she has gathered for us each time.
This week, as soon as I saw the beautiful colors,
I just knew I had to paint them!
I carefully laid them out and drew them on the canvas that night,
so I could paint first thing in the morning.
The colors are amazing, and to think they were grown locally without
any chemicals or pesticides. Jennifer and her husband have the
best assistants: their 2 sweet children.

20x24 oil on canvas
I love color, but there is something about white roses
that speaks to me.
I used a limited palette, which is something new for me.
It amazes me that there are so many things to learn and so many
ways to create art.
I hope you have a joyful day!
