Happy Day!

Hope you had a great weekend!


I took this photo with my iphone this morning. The peach painting is on a cradled wooden panel - measures 16"x16"x7/8" ($125.00). The hydrangea I painted during my first year of painting (2007 or 2008). I love the old wooden frame I found at a flea market. 

Have a great day!

My Art in Other Homes

I am thrilled when someone sends me a snapshot of my art in their home.

Here are a few photos that were sent to me .....

 















A baby's nursery....


And this is my nephew, I mailed him a potato.


My sister is forced to have my art on her wall, I don't give her a choice! (Can you tell that I am the bossy oldest?)

I am going to dig through my old texts, emails, and etsy messages to find a few more. If you have a photo of my art in your home, please send it to me when you get a chance! (TheOldPost Road at gmail.) Thanks!
Have a great day!

Summer Art

This group said "good bye" to me today and found their way to new homes!


It's funny how I often sell several paintings, all at once!

Hope you are having a great week!

Studio McGee and Pretty Things

I have 1,439 things to get done this week, so I started looking at blogs.
The 1,439 items I need to complete do not have anything to do with home decor. 
Escapism?
Is that what it is called?

I found this great designer and had to share. -Just in case you need a reason not to do what is required of you, today! wink, wink



I may just move into the Midway house.

Have a great day! Hope you are accomplishing more than I am!

Beach Art


A friend asked me to paint something "beachy," so I tried a few things. I started with those oysters in a bucket and then painted a crab or two...



Planning to paint a few more "beachy" things this week. Come back to see them.  

This last bouquet is a painting I created for a local charity auction....





Have a great day!

My Art and What I Copied This Go Round

Here are some more paintings I created with the "muse" or original photograph I used to inspire them.


(Took lots of liberties with that re-creation! Just used the type of flower and fruit, rather than the footed bowl, etc. )

Did I mention that it is 
against my husband's advice that I am posting these?


He politely told me not to post the original photo of the flowers next to my painted interpretation. 
He said, and I quote:  "They might like the original better." 

As in: I wish we had original photos of flowers on our walls instead of your painted ones.
He actually said that.
Don't show them the original photograph you copied. They might like the original photograph better than your painting.  
Hmmm. Wonder who he means by "they?"

You might be glad to hear that we are still married, even after he made that suggestion.
He is so very helpful with my art endeavors. 
The encouraging, the supporting, the little comments and "suggestions.". Ugh.
