Aside from the wonky egg cups, this one was really fun to paint!  In my defense, though, I had a lot of interruptions during this one.......  Oh well.  Not too bad

egg up close

More eggs.  More egg cups.  Methinks a series has begun.  This one is a wee one- only 4x6.  Please ignore the shadow protrudance on the right....

egg- SOLD woohoo!

All is well and good in the world.  Why did no one tell me how much fun it is to paint porcelain??   I think I might have to do more of this...  I feel like I can see light again- not THE light, but light.  As in light, shadows, reflections, etc.  Something that you might find really lame, but it really was the reason why I started painting in the first place.  When I painted flowers, that's all it was, really.  Light, shadow, and reflection.  POOF!  Out came a flower.  Just like that.  With my pot of brunswick stew bubbling away on the stove and this beautiful snow we're having, (oh and the kids are both still asleep), I am quite at my leisure....  ahhhh

A beautiful paint job by my daughter...

She has been so excited to see my painting corner that she asked if she could paint "using all your stuff mama"..  I love her so much

A little blue......    not sure if I'm quite feeling it yet.  Since then I have brightened it up a bit so it's a little better

my daughter's cookies

hahahaaaaaa  well..... um.... here is my first painting in my new setup.  My daughter's cookies.  Kinda looks like she may have done this painting as well..... eh it's not too bad.  My first attempt.  Well, it sure isn't a flower or landscape, but it's not too bad.  I just ate the one in the middle.  OO I totally should have taken a bite before I painted it.  Oh that would have been much better.  A little cliché maybe. Oh well what can ya do...  Let's see what happens tomorrow

nobody puts baby in the corner...

New painting digs- at least for the moment...  hopefully the kids don't freak out that mama's in a cage.  Now I just have to locate my palette...  But until then here's another of my old painting of the day paintings called Lighthouse..
