6x6 acrylic on hardboard - Available on etsy

It felt like it had been awhile since I'd tried a still life.  My husband bought these peaches, and since we rarely have them in the house they seemed like a good option.  I'm not a huge peach fan, but I found that I like painting them.  Or at least I did today... Let's not jinx it, right?

Stage Fright

6x6 acrylic on canvas panel

Sometimes the hardest part of the painting (if I'm lucky) is coming up with a title. But the longer I looked at this one it seemed like the background trees were an audience to the tree in the foreground, and I empathized with it :P

Older Couple at the Parade

6x6 acrylic on hardboard

Yesterday we walked down to watch the 4th of July parade in town.  It was a great parade, but it was very hot.  In fact, we decided to leave early because the heat was making us miserable.  When I got home I was looking through my photos and spotted this couple in the background.  They were having a great time despite the heat.

Hello Little Squirrel

8x10 acrylic on canvas panel

This guy was following us around one day at the playground.  When we were headed back for the car, he was sitting on top of it, like he was considering coming with us.
