"Memorial Day" Oil 5x7

Although this view greets me every morning, bringing me much joy throughout the day, I have to say I have neglected its potential as a painting subject.  This magnolia and its accompanying bronzes gives me a tremendous amount of pleasure, especially during full bloom.   
Recently, I have made an effort to catch up on friends' blogs and websites, and, in the process, I have re-acquainted myself with Carol Marine and her Daily Paintworks website. On the site, she, or other featured artist, posts a painting "challenge". If you are unfamiliar with it, I strongly suggest you check it out:
This week's challenge, posted by artist Ann Feldman, challenges the artist to look outside for inspiration, and then to go out and enjoy it!  This view from my studio doors is one I enjoy daily, with today being no exception!  Thanks for the inspiration Ann.  :)

"Pewter, Pear & Apple" Original oil painting 11x14

I have not been idle these last few months, just very, very busy!  I have had projects in the works, too numerous to bore you in the telling.  I have not even had time to photograph most of my recent works, but am submitting this painting, just to keep myself visible.  This is a painting I created from Susan Carlin's reference and online workshop in March.  I was quite inattentive during the workshop, but managed to pull it through in the following week, when I could concentrate, and this is the end result.  Thanks Susan, for a great reference and fun workshop experience.
If you ever have the opportunity to subscribe to one of Susan's online workshops, I highly recommend it.  Visit her website to inquire about opportunities for future classes.
