I was parked waiting for my husband to come out of the auto repair where we had taken our van to be serviced.  This fireplug caught my eye with its bright orange color so I took some photos.  As I was doing that Bill came out along with the Manager of the repair shop.  He asked why I was taking photos of a fireplug and I said I was going to paint it.  Of course he didn't know I was an artist and he looked quite worried.  I finally told him I was going to do a painting of it--not paint the actual fireplug!

This is a painting of a bouquet given to me by a friend in thanks for my taking care of her kitties while she was out of town.  It differs a little bit from the original bouquet because the one white flower in the bouquet was some kind of Queen Anne's Lace, but it didn't last long enough for me to paint it.  Instead I had to put in a little white Daisy.  The Gerbera Daisy was original.  The purple flowers resembled violets but were some other kind of flower of which I don't know the name.  

The Art A Fair show opens in Laguna Beach next Friday, June 25th, so if you are in the vicinity come for a visit!

Heisler Park View (Laguna)

This is a view from one of the bluffs at Heisler Park in Laguna Beach, CA.  I used a combination of brushwork and palette knife to combine smooth areas with very textured areas.  I'm getting ready for the Art A Fair show with the opening night on the 25th  by invitation only and the 27th when we open to the public.  If you would like a Pass, call me at 714-271-1135.
