Memorial Day

I painted this painting of cherries today when everyone was busy relaxing on Memorial Day. I call this painting "Life is like a bowl of cherries".  Thanks to the men and women that keep us safe, we can all enjoy life in the best country in the world.
Hope you enjoyed this day as much as I did.  Thank you veterans and troops !!!!

Sunflowers in Blue Urn

Here is what I worked on last week along with the 6X8 paintings that I try to paint daily.  It is a 20x16 painting of Sunflowers that my daughter's boyfriend brought her.  He actually brought lilies with them and I have not been able to paint the lilies because of the holiday weekend and all the family things that go with it. I had fun painting the sunflowers in a blue urn that my mother bought at an auction. The hardest thing about the sunflowers was the strokes that created the petals. Hope you like this one.
Thank you for viewing !
