Little Still Life Paintings.



These are 5"x7" oil paintings on panel. I love the smooth surface, but might be a trifle too smooth. Will sand them down a bit for the next ones. I sure enjoyed painting these.
This morning I scooped up some bargains at Herweck's annual art supply sale. Still big bucks, but more for them.
Tomorrow is my day at River Art Gallery and will take several paintings to display while I'm there.
Next week the first pastel class is on Tuesday at the Coppini. Wednesday I paint with Donna Good and Mary Shepard. Thursday is the Austin Pastel Society meeting. Feels good to be filling my days with all things art again. Please leave comments if you visit here. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm talking to myself again!

Love the baby oil paintings. How sweet! How do you frame these? Would love to see a photo of them in the frame.
Good luck with the pastel classes...and all you do!

Lookin' good Susan. Love reading your blog.

Awww... Thank you, my friends. I'm glad you're out there. Framing is a problem. Most frames for 5x7s are small table-top ones. Brendy, got any great ideas?

I can always make some for you.

Brendy,
Well, alrighty then. I'm trying to find something equivalent to the plein air frames Miguel has on "the truck." They're 3-4" wide. Can you do something similar in the $20. range? Am I dreaming?
Dreamy Susan

I don't have that exact molding - I love that molding but haven't been able to find it.

I have a 3" gold frame with a beaded lip. I could do a 5x7 for $26 if you ordered 3 or more frames at a time.
