Two more flower girls

I have finished a couple more in my series of flower girls   'Violet'  and  'Holly'.  Each created to reflect the blooms they are named for, these women are painted on llx14 canvases.  Sort of a continuation of my things on people's heads or around their faces.  If you check the archives you can see 'Lily'  in January of 2006, she started it all.  Then there are 'Rose' in June  and   'Iris' in September of 2012.  I have sketches and ideas for a Daisy, let's hope she dosen't take years to make her appearance.

local sites

This little 8x10 landscape is the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne Falls.  If you are local to western Massachusetts it is a beautiful place to spend a day.  Down below the falls there are the 'devil's pock marks' which are holes the water wore in the rocks.

fabulous floating frames

My husband came up with a great way to frame paintings that are painted over the edges.  These floating frames not only show off the painted sides of these paintings but I think they give these very different landscapes a conteporary look.  He keeps coming up with ways to make my art look wonderful!

Another local landscape

This is Paradise Pond at Smith College.  I have never been there and noticed it on the internet while browsing.  It was just after painting the Old Mill waterfall so I suppose that might have been why I was inspired to paint it.  The painting is a 16x20 acrylic on stretched canvas.

Night on the Town

Summer is here an it's time for me to finish up some paintings begun in the winter.  This 3D applied canvas board is 18x24.  While working on 'Nate's Diner' I applied some everyday items to 2 canvases.  This one with the items a woman might use before her big date, and the other has office supplies.

Long before I got the idea for Night on the Town I thought I might like to paint a row of brownstone like buildings, so I placed my couple right out in the street.

If you have any ideas for the office supplies leave me a comment...
