SUNFLOWERS! Another of my favorites. The large blossoms are blocked in with mixes of Cadmium Yellow Medium + Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Yellow Medium + a touch of MUD (Ultramarine Blue + Alizarin Crimson) and pure Cadmium Yellow Medium.

The kitty on the window sill is painted with mixes of Ivory Black + White. Highlights of Ultramarine Blue + White shine on his glossy coat. You may click on the picture to see it larger.

A Butterfly! Nothing gets past these two. Butterflies and lizards BEWARE! The Garden Patrol is ready to protect their territory from any dangerous invaders. It’s been fun having you follow along. Many have asked how I’m doing. Better, thank you. Painting has been a God send. It’s a special connection to Jack and gives me great joy. Our Lord has blessed me with so many wonderful, caring friends like all of you who care. I sincerely appreciate your concern. You are my internet family, helping me discover my new path! HUGS,

    Address: Several of you have asked about my gallery in Sedona. It’s called EXPOSURES FINE ART and their address is 561 HWY 179 Sedona, Arizona. They are a huge gallery on the right side of the highway before you enter Sedona proper. They are close to Tlaquepaque. Here is their toll-free number: 877-ART-SITE
