Peggy Lawton's cookies

I'm not a big fan of cookies, much more of a candy girl, but I just can't resist Peggy Lawton's. It doesn't help either that they're always near the check out counter.  So, here's to Peggy!

5 Minute Paintings

Last night was the first night of class. Seeing we all took the summer off we needed an exercise to get us moving again. The students started by doing 5 minute paintings with big brushes and limited brushstrokes. Check out these fantastic results below!

Midnight Snack

I'm settling into the fall season in my studio working on a series of small still lives. I hope this one brings back a few memories. After all, when's the last time you actually enjoyed Cookies and Milk?

So, this is day 2 of my new blog. Still figuring it all out.
I spent a great deal of time this spring and summer going back to "all things vintage".  Attached is one of a series of vintage inspired paintings (24x36). Today It is off to the J. Todd Gallery in Wellesley.
