Peach
: a round, sweet fruit that has white or yellow flesh, soft yellow or pink skin, and a large, hard seed at the center; a person or thing that is liked or admired very much.

Each of us yearns to be liked, admired, and loved very much.

God loves us with an everlasting love. We can't escape Him. We're always in His thoughts...even in our worst moments He wants to know what's on our minds and hearts. He knows each of our inner workings even before we live them out. How can we ever say no to such love.

Psalm 139 says He loves us so much that a book has been written about us! Find out about His love for us and what's in His book about us. Come into a relationship with the One who created you and loves you very much.

Peach: a round, sweet fruit that has white or yellow flesh, soft yellow or pink skin, and a large, hard seed at the center; a person or thing that is liked or admired very much.

Mango On Wood Block I is the first in a series of paintings on the luscious mango. Not only did I have the fun of  reproducing its shimmering skin using my oil paints, but I got to eat it afterwards! It was great fun varying the pressure of my brush to achieve the mango's glow.

The biggest challenge was keeping the light and shadow on the mango separate, yet softening the transition between the light and shadow.

How did I do?

Now let's feast on some mango in my recipe, Mango Curry Quinoa!

Brass Pot with Doily, Grapes, and Oranges



oil on linen on board / 5" x 7" / unframed / sold



Many of my friends and relatives have missed my paintings with doilies. This painting is in honor of their request-thank you for your encouragement!
As with all my paintings, this was a joy to paint. I particularly, enjoyed the contrast of textures-the hardness of the brass pot, the delicate doily, the translucent grapes and orange slices, and the fading leaves.

I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I had painting it.
