one no. six


I don't have much to say about this one.  It's a blueberry.  From behind.

one no. five


Well.....  here is yet another blueberry... I don't really have anything to say about this one that would be any different from the last one.  Or the one before that.  In my own defense, my mind has been on other things. My daughter has a cold and my dog has to go see a shrink....   But just as I was about to apologize for being so monotonous with my paintings (just a note to remind you that I am following a dream idea with all of these blueberries), I received a lovely message complimenting me on them!  It really doesn't get any better than that..  I will keep on keepin on then.......

one no. four


Well this is really starting to shape up into a pretty interesting display.  I still need about 6 more and then I'll be happy..

I have discovered, incidentally, that if there is even one fly buzzing around in the room, I can't help but feel like it's landing on me every 3 seconds.  And that it called it's friends over to crawl on my legs and burrow in my hair.  I'm just really glad that this one didn't take me that long to paint.......

in the pink


What can I say about this one..................

For some reason, it really looks way better in person.  And the 95 degree heat was really pounding on my back so that I could smell my skin while painting.  And there were two flies dive bombing my head.  So actually, between the heat, the skin burning smell, and the kamikaze flies......

Not bad.  Not bad at all.

one no. three


The series continues...  I really don't know what the deal is though, about these photos.  They are really quite lousy.  I just can't seem to find the right spot to photograph the final paintings........

one no. two


I had a dream where I had a huge cluster of these on the wall, all together, and it really looked phenomenal.  So here is my experiment to see how fine the line actually is between dream and reality.

Wow.  That sounded way too deep for a Friday afternoon.

This painting has just grown on me.  And by just, I literally mean just now, this very moment, as I loaded it here.  It was a real menace, this one, maybe because I've been out of town with my feet in the sand for the past week.  It's so funny.  The first painting in after a hiatus, no matter how long, is usually pretty rough.  Especially when I have a deadline that is quickly closing in....  I don't like them while I am painting, but after I'm through, they end up being some of my favorites.  Go figure.
