More Good News...














Yes, yes, it's been a while since I've posted here.  Holidays and life just got in the way for a while.  The exciting news is that I sold two paintings of mine, 'Petunias' and the study of 'Waiting for Marigolds.'  It's a very good feeling to know that two pieces I worked so hard on are in the homes of friends who will enjoy them and think of me :-)  Also, I sold three of Bill's works.  'Forest' a pastel on sandpaper and 'Collioure Morning' and 'Collioure Evening,' two nice watercolor and ink paintings.  See....it IS good news.  Thanks for following along with us.

Green Pears Study - Available














Oil on canvas - 5 x 7"
Framed size - 13 x 15"

This painting is available for sale. For additional information, please email susanbonnell@olympus.net. Click the picture for a larger, detailed photograph.

This is a small painting I finished yesterday...the first painting in a LONG time.  The plan is to do another study of the same pears in a different arrangement before they vanish.  Then I'll do both paintings in a larger format.  I was mostly practicing the colors on this one, to see how they worked together.  I like it. What do you think?

Good News!


I'm so excited to tell you that I sold TWO paintings today (well, Jack, at the Director's Gallery on Bainbridge Island actually sold them :-)  And these two of my favorites, Rabblerousers and Holligans, the apples and oranges, that I painted as a pair, SOLD as a pair.  I feel like the proud parent who gets to see both kids go off to school together, hand in hand, and not be separated! Makes me very, very happy and anxious to get back to doing more painting.

I'm doing 'stuff,' but it's hard to stay in the studio with summer starting, yes starting, here in Seattle, and company coming, and lots of other, distracting, and not so hard things to do. Must get back in there tho. Time's a-wastin.

Hand - Study



Just finished this today--at least as far as I'm going to take it. It was fun and I learned a ton!

Glasses



This is the little painting I've been working on. And because I don't like it, I'm stalling and not doing anything with it. Gonna have to bite the bullet and finish it off, whether I like it or not. Finishing is important to the process. Very important. Thanks for taking a peek.

Stretch



I've been drawing more than painting lately, which is not such a good idea, but I enjoy it so much. Here's the latest...
