Looking for items to play off a red/green color complement theme, I had this old Snapple bottle that a neighbor had rooted some plants in for me. It seemed to go perfectly with this bright pink gerbera daisy and green apple. Funny what you'll find when looking for still-life props! Sometimes, simplicity is the key...the answer to what you really need.

I used to have a drawer full of fabric as I used to sew quite a bit. On one of our last moves, I gave most of that away, since I wasn't using it. Now I'm remembering the colors and pieces of cloth that I had and am thinking what great back-drops they would make for some of these floral paintings. hmm, Hindsight is 20/20.

*****Upcoming shows - Here in CT: I'll be taking part in the Mystic Art Center's Members Exhibition which opened this past Friday, January 14th, runs through the 26th of February. Hope you get a chance to see this show right here on the banks of the Mystic River.

Also- I've juried in to the 19th Annual Associate Artist Exhibition at Lyme Art Association!! The show runs from January 14th - February 26th. The Opening Reception is Friday, January 21st, from 5-7pm. I am truly honored to be hanging in this historic venue with many of New England's finest artists!
