Teal Plate with Olives

For Sale in Etsy
The colors of teal and "shrimp" are some of my favorites. I found this plate at an outlet and just knew the colors were worth replicating. Olives were just part of dinner that night. This is another 8 x 8 (love square paintings) on masonite with acrylic paints.

Hillary, A Greyhound

8 x 8 inch acrylic on masonite (sits perfectly on an easel)
I have always thought the stories of what happen to the beautiful, graceful greyhounds that don't serve the racing world any longer is a disgrace. I do not own a greyhound but I think these gentle creatures are so in need of rescue. I love the shy look on this little girl greyhound's sweet face. If anyone would like to purchase this painting, I will gladly donate the proceeds to the Greyhound Rescue. (Price to Help the Greyhounds - $25.00, and I will ship free of charge to anyone in the US).

The Radish Committee

For Sale in Etsy
I admit that I like this painting more than any I have done. I like the loose strokes and the beautiful reds and greens together. It is on a six by six masonite with a border and is done with Old Holland acrylics. They are great acrylics and work equal to their great oils.

THE dog

Not for Sale
While I paint, my sweet dog often sits close. Guess the latest painting was a bit boring because she just fell asleep. Had to capture the moment.

Lemons Number One

I find it very relaxing to paint fruit and still life. I did this one recently and just posted it in my Etsy shop. Hope you enjoy.

This is a portrait of a beautiful young lady named Sophia who is the young daughter of a dear friend, Samantha Brown. It is done as a gift and is not for sale. I enjoy portraits so much and have done quite a few as gifts.

Cafe At Lunch

I am posting an original oil painting that will begin my blogging journey. I am going to post my works to chronicle my progress as I strive to grow as an artist.

This is a 8 x 8 original oil on masonite. If you are interested in purchasing any of my artwork, please email me at propstanne@yahoo.com
