Oil painting on canvas of flowers. Minnesota and South Dakota artist.

I can’t not think about Georgia O’keeffe when painting flower close-ups, and of course her flowers were a bit saucy. So this title is a bit of an homage to her…

I started this painting yesterday, and when I came back today to work on it, I found that the flower had relaxed in a very pleasing way. The petals were a bit more curled under…

Portrait artist paints cat Watching the Red Green Show

Can you see my studio companion in this painting?

We love the Red Green Show on PBS, and when I saw the two apples together I thought it would be fun to make them a silly homage. 🙂

This one was a real challenge for me. Reflective metal can really kick my booty – so of course I’ll be painting more of it soon.

I’ve been thinking about my still life setups a little differently the last few days – choosing my items more deliberately.

I got this little bird from the Salvation Army yesterday while looking for still life items. It looks to me like it’s smiling at the smell of the daisy.

Thank you so much for all of the comments and emails I received about the iris paintings! That was so nice!
