"Derby" [SOLD]

This is a painting of our miniature daschund Derby. She is looking out the window at the cats on the porch. She hates the cats, but the cats are bigger than her and to her dismay pay her no mind.

I had a great day yesterday shopping for cool things to paint. It is funny, I used to have a terrible time making my mind up about what to paint. I have so many things planned, it is exciting. The produce section and bakery all have new meaning to me. I bought donuts and pastries, vegetables, cadbury eggs, a fancy dipped caramel apple, glassware, and cups. The possibilities are endless. My mantle is full of paintings, I have never been this prolific it feels good.

This was such a fun painting. This is of our cat Tulip. She is old as the hills but she still acts like a kitten. One day my husband and I were sitting on the front porch and we saw this blur darting around the front yard. It was Tulip playing very unlike a cat of her years.

This is an adorable little girl we spotted playing in the park in Charleston. I loved her yellow Crocs.

"Candy Apple"[SOLD]

I was looking around for a fancy dessert to paint and I saw this candy apple. It is a Granny Smith, dipped in caramel and white chocolate and rolled in praline almonds.
