Pinecones, Mandarins, and Cranberries


I spent another day at home, painting. Tomorrow I will return to work - the weather has warmed up considerably, and I imagine we'll be able to travel down our hill without problem. When it first began snowing, we put cables on our tires, but they weren't much help. After struggling to get them off this evening, we agreed that we will buy snow tires so we won't be stuck at home next winter.

This is another seasonal painting.  I don't plan to put it up for auction yet because I've reverted to my "slow-dry" paint.  I love it because it is so easy to work with, but it takes the painting about 2-3 weeks to dry.

I like this one a lot, Sue. These seasonal paintings are really great. I did one as a demo in the workshop today...with some pinecones.

What a wonderful job you did with the pine cones and mandarins, Sue. This one shimmers.
I can see that your love for color is well suited to the fracturing technique.
Looking forward to seeing what you do in 2014. Happy New Year and thank you for the blogging friendship.

Thank you, Julie - your kind comments mean so much!

I'm looking forward to 2014. I'll be retiring on January 31, and intend to devote my new free time to painting - something I've wanted to do for a long time.

Best wishes to you, Julie, for a wonderful New Year. I am so glad to have you as a friend.
