A Gift to Cherish

(By Jane Moller, olio su cartone / oil on cardboard 10, 5 x 15 cm)


Spring arrived in the mail for me today with this beautiful bouquet painted by my friend Jane Moller.  I am one of the lucky winners of her painting giveaway!
This painting has me mesmerized, it is even more special knowing a dear friend painted it.
Thank you Jane!

All about Roses

 View of Rome from the Pincian Hill watercolor on paper 23 x 30.5
My friend, Michelle Endersby,  asked if I would enjoy doing a sketch of a rose in Rome for her monthly newsletter. Michelle's work has the most beautiful art inspired by roses and nature (click here to view her work). She shares her knowledge about roses, rose gardens, most importantly her current artworks. She has an amazing collection of roses from her personal garden, homeland of Australia and travels. (you can view them on her  Instagram page)

Rome has many beautiful gardens. My thoughts went back to a rose I remembered seeing in the Pincian Gardens. I always hoped to have the opportunity to go back to paint this image. I was lucky enough when I made it back up there to find roses to sketch, it happened to be just as the sun was setting.  The light became golden, sharpening the colors of the already beautiful subject for me.



my sketch done on site

A painting of what is in front of me, from direct observation. 
I am finding it more difficult to keep up with this blog. I feel I need to simplify, this will be my last post. 
I wish to thank everyone who has taken the time to visit me here over the years. It has been a wonderful experience.

Peaceful Isolation

I painted this on location while on the Greek island of Ios. I was mesmerized by the jewel color of the ocean and the beautiful color shifts it created. One of my favorite spots had this dinghy left at anchor, I was immediately attracted by the similarities between the colors of the dinghy and the surrounding water. 


This is the first sketch in my sketchbook.
The sun dried everything on contact, which took some getting use to.  I discovered that it was better if I filled my palette wells with water and worked smaller.



This is the second sketch.
The little red dot you see in the water is my husband snorkeling.  He wears a red swim cap to make it easy for me to find him.



This is as far as I got on location. I didn't bring my finer brushes. I left the fine details for when I got home.


Thank you for your visit!
