I was getting a bit weary of my "painting a day project", and needed a little break. I decided to try an interior room of my home, so my unmade bed became my subject this Saturday morning.

I had this down by noon. I am enjoying the larger canvas. I am trying to keep most areas soft and neutral. I am really liking the rosy glow against the neutral grays.

Finished and ready for my signature!!!  I am very pleased with the finished painting.  I think it is one of my stronger paintings.  
PS:  This just won a Blue Ribbon Award Monday night (3/9/09)

This is the third painting that is using time as a reference, which could result in a series that goes on and on!!!!!

This is a painting of a toy elephant with that old pottery barn clock again. I have a basket full of toys for my granddaughter, and this is one of her favorites.

I'm not certain if I will carry on this 'time series' ..... What do you think???? I am kind of running out of ideas ..... and am tired of painting the same clock ! Your comments are appreciated.

"Quiet Time"

The ellipse on the face of the clock caused me GRIEF!!!!!  The clock was actually turned a bit .... with the left hand side turned back into the picture plane, with the right hand side closer to the viewer.  I don't think my painting reflects this...... but since my original blog goal was to post my paintings as they are,  ..... unaltered ..... here it is!  Any suggestions how to achieve this would be appreciated :)
