SOLD on eBay

I have my great grandmother's set of Riviera pattern by Homer Laughlin. These dishes were 
typically given as "Premiums" in laundry soap boxes in the early 1940's.

Blueberries are a favorite of mine to paint. getting that grayish blue color is key.

A simple study of light & reflections. 
The challenge was getting an indication of the words on the glass jar while 
the paint was wet adding to the looseness of the brushstrokes.

Painting a Day #2 Satsuma Reflections

Satsuma Reflections

6" x 6"

Available: $325

I love painting reflections on a glass surface, the lights generally reflect darker and the darks reflect lighter...same with reflections on water. It's one of those things I love about painting.  You just need to trust your eye to know how to mix a color that you are seeing.

Jennifer Bellinger "A Painting a Day" #1

Lemon with Blue Knife 
6" x 6"

Available:  $325

I'm back at it with A Painting a Day....well, hopefully at least 3X a week as my schedule allows.

I have missed the discipline of completing a small painting in a day. My last post was in 2012 and during the interim a lot has transpired.  2012-2016 I had a beautiful gallery with space for my easel to paint in downtown Ketchum.  I represented 5 nationally known bronze sculptors and while I loved having the gallery I wasn't getting much of my own painting done. 

I look forward to keeping my blog up to date and check out what other artists are up to.

Thanks for visiting!
