Dinner Party Arrangement
Acrylic on Canvas
18" x 24"

This is a painting that came together in bits and pieces.I had a photo of the flower arrangement, found a photo of the white dresser table in a catalog, added the brass pot and sheer fabric from my own collection of things to paint and created a composition. I wanted the painting to be light and airy.

sea shell

Acrylic on canvas
9" x 12"

This is an experiment in painting thinly with acrylics,almost looks like a watercolor painting. It was fun and i like the end result but while painting it was a struggle to control the thin, wet paint. This is painted using just 3 colors + white, ultramarine blue, napthol red and  cadmium yellow. I did this for homework for a class i am taking with a wonderful lady and talented artist Jill Pottle. Please check out her work here -

still life with pomegranate
acrylic on canvas
18" x 24"

One of the oldest known fruits, found in writings and artifacts of many cultures and religions, the pomegranate (punica granatum) is an original native of Persia. This nutrient dense, antioxidant rich fruit has been revered as a symbol of health, fertility and eternal life. 
Health Benefits of the Pomegranate
  • Most powerful anti-oxidant of all fruits
  • Potent anti-cancer and immune supporting effects
  • Inhibits abnormal platelet aggregation that could cause heart attacks, strokes and embolic disease
  • Lowers cholesterol and other cardiac risk factors
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Shown to promote reversal of atherosclerotic plaque in human studies
  • May have benefits to relieve or protect against depression and osteoporosis
Many studies show that the pomegranate is one of the most powerful, nutrient dense foods for overall good health. These clinical findings clearly show a correlation between pomegranate compounds and their positive effect on both human and animal cardiovascular, nervous, and skeletal health. This is one fruit that you can't afford to exclude from your diet!
PicMonkey Collage
Here is a collage of some of the paintings i created with artist Lesli Saeta during her "30 paintings in 30 days" challenge. This was created using an on-line program called picmonkey. here is a link if you want to create your own collage .

Here is a tip: Try to use lower resolution photos if you want to add a lot of photos to your collage, it is easier to upload lower res. photos.

It is a fun tool, try it. Happy collaging!!!
