The bright colors of Fiesta dishes put me in the best mood.  It's a great way to start the day!

Beneath The Milky Twilight

Experimenting with some moody colors.  These daisies seem to be lit by moonlight with the muted purples surrounding them.  It reminded me of a line from one of my favorite songs "Kiss Me", by Sixpence None The Richer.

Strawberry Margarita

My daughter's name is Maggie (short for Margaret), but I always loved the Spanish version just as much.

Splice The Mainbrace

oil on 1 1/2" deep stretched canvas

I first heard this term on International Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19th).  Originally it was an order for one of the most difficult and dangerous repair jobs aboard a ship.  The crew members who followed through would be awarded an extra ration of rum or grog afterwards.  The term eventually morphed to mean a celebratory drink on special occasions.

Hit The Sauce

After all of the turkey leftovers and extended family togetherness this past week,  I'm ready to "hit the sauce"!  ;)   Seriously, it is time for a menu change.  I make my own pasta sauce that we all love over spaghetti.  Yum.

Some sunshine on a 25 degree night in Houston!  These sunflowers are painted on a 1 1/2" deep gallery canvas.  There is no need for a frame.
