Satsuma Trio: Sold

These Satsuma oranges had the most beautiful stems and leaves, so I decided to find the right container in which to display them. Then, I couldn't quite bear to eat them, so what else -- a painting! We did eventually enjoy eating them, and of course, they were delicious.

Berries and Tea: Sold

This vintage Bavarian teacup belonged to my Mother. It is a charming old piece, and looked so pretty with a few fresh raspberries -- I just had to paint it. It has a hanger that allows the painting to stand out 3/4" from the wall, a neat look I borrowed from a friend.

Aloha: Sold

This historic old plantation house is preserved on the grounds of the Mauna Lani Hotel on the Big Island of Hawaii. There is a wonderful public beach nearby. I used lots of paint on this one, which was from a photograph taken by my husband, Max. Palm trees are especially fun to paint -- especially in the dead of winter.
