Such a treasure! This is my second purchase from this gifted and wonderful artist. Her pieces are like stopping to enjoy a small slice of life, carefully preserved. Both art pieces were shipped amazingly fast, and very carefully.

Simple still life paintings

I opened my Etsy shop four years ago, and it's been a wonderful experience. I'm a great starter and a bad finisher. The satisfaction of listing a new painting on my shop has really pushed me to be a more productive artist.

One of the best things about being a still life painter is finding pleasure and inspiration in so many everyday things--gardening, cooking, setting the table, even grocery shopping. A trip to the farmers market is especially inspiring. I'm constantly looking at cookbooks and cooking magazines, art books, and design websites. Ideas for paintings come way faster than I can paint them.

Favorite subjects are fruits, vegetables, flowers, and branches, which I set up in my studio. I love to paint directly from life, as opposed to using photos, and love being in the studio surrounded by my colorful subjects. Painting from life does have its downside. Some plant matter is very short lived. If I don't finish my painting in time, I may have to wait another year to finish when the plant's back in season. For me though, it's the best way to paint.

Thanks for taking the time to read about my work and look at my paintings--
