The paper here looks buff, but it is actually quite an earthy orange tone. As are the paper bags.
Cheating like crazy, but this drawing was well preserved from 2006. You can see it originally posted here:
Nel's Art Marks  under 2006, November.

This is actually more the color of the paper, below.
Found as I was searching around for something to post today.

Oh, I like this one, I couldn't tell you exactly why. Maybe it's the feeling of space, maybe it's the warm grasses in the field. Or just the overall sense of peace here in this big openness.

Since this one didn't sell at $25, I've revised it a bit, and lowered the price.
I deepened the color of the snow shadows, and added more light to the pines, filled them out a bit more, and added the twigs and grasses. Better I think.

We've got cold, raw, wet rain today (OK, I'm grateful it's not snow, but...), and I am thinking greens and colors. I'll still be doing still life, and snow scenes, but for today, I'm resting assured that we will have spring, summer and fall again. Greens and colors, and warmth.

Another visit to the Food Bank over the weekend. It's so nice that I can also get flowers there, pick a couple of packages, and then discard the dead flowers, make a new bouquet from the survivors. Along with my blue vase from our local hospital thrift shop.

I have to admit that I had help with this one. My 6 year old granddauther loves to draw and paint, so she sat on my lap (lap painting, Yay) and did the white snow for me. But only to the edges. "I can blend, TT!" So I let her do a little of that too.

Here's Kayla painting outside on the deck this past summer. (See the tongue action?)


Baguette and Cheese - SOLD

Baguette and Cheese
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 12" x 12"
SOLD at $17 plus $10 shipping.

This canvas may well be destined for a landscape, but I'm trying some new things, stuff I usually don't paint, and had to struggle with this one. It almost got wiped twice, but I figured I'd see if anyone out there liked it.

Free Bouquet - SOLD

Free Bouquet
Oil on Canvas Panel, 16" x 12"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.



Our pastor on Thanksgiving Eve was a local rabbi who announced at the service that he also ran a Food Bank out of his third garage. We were invited to follow him home and it was a bonanza of lovely food, a lot of it from Trader Joe's. I've gone back about four times since then, and have had some wonderful meals, fresh produce only slightly marred, and this time when I went I took three almost dead bunches of flowers, picked through them, and made this freebie bouquet. What's not to like?

There was a nice sale on tucked canvases today at Michaels, 5" x 7" tucked into 8" x 10", tucked into 12" x 16", and two more larger graduating sizes of canvases. All five for $14.95. Good deal, right? So here's the first one on the 5" x 7", just a quick pepper, since I still have them.

It feels as though I've forgotten how to paint, it's been awhile. I got to have my granddaughter for the weekend, and of course, no painting then, but lots of play time.

This is Kayla, after church on Sunday. Isn't she a sweetie?
