Delicious Plums

Plum Dotty 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

$100 and free shipping

These plums caught my eye early this morning when I went to the market; I was choosing them according to the colors I wanted to paint and their size. I already knew how sweet they are since I tasted one yesterday. These are all red plums even though a couple of them look a little purple.
I tried a polka dot background instead of the stripes I have been focusing on. Fun to paint.
There may be more plum paintings in my future. 
I hope you enjoy these!

Golden Blooms

Simply Sunflowers, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

$100 and free shipping 

This has been a busy day, but very good painting time was available to me and I had fun working on several ideas. Just realized I have not painted any sunflowers this year so here is one just for you. Aren't they cheerful and fun?
The birds do love them but these are still standing without being eaten. The birds seem to go after the seeds whether they are fully ready or not.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes On A Yellow Plate, 8 x 8" oil on gessobord, ©2014, Fay Terry

$150 plus $10 domestic shipping

All of a sudden we have lots of tomatoes ripening every day in the garden; they are wonderful but I am going to have to find some creative ways to use them all.  I also have eggplant so maybe I will make my long ago recipe for ratatouille.  I can only eat so many tomato sandwiches!

A Little Obsessed with stripes

Blue Vase, 8 x 8 " oil on gessobord panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

$150  plus $10 domestic shipping

I have been picking lots of flowers and vegetables from the garden; these cute little cherry tomatoes were admiring the Zinnias so I let them be in the painting. It was nice to use larger panel this time after doing a few six inch paintings I wanted to go a little larger.

Please feel free to forward this to someone you think might enjoy it and they can subscribe to my blog if they like. I am trying to expand my subscriber list so any help you give me will be appreciated!

Red

Tomato Time, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

This is a summer favorite, love it when you can just walk out to the garden and pick fresh tomatoes. These are cherry tomatoes and they never seem to stop producing more little babies.
I think this is going to be a week-end for working outdoors. We did some yard work late this afternoon but man, it was still ninety degrees.
I took paintings to the beach today and spent a little time in downtown Wilmington, which thankfully has lots of shaded streets.

Playful work




This is a small study for a possible larger painting I have been thinking of doing. It is always fun to try several small ones first so I'll be drawing lots of sea turtles this week to see how I want to put them together on a big canvas.
Thanks for following my paintings!

Summer Bouquet

Hand Picked, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

$100 plus shipping


Today's picks from the garden behaved well while they were posing for me. They did not wiggle or fall over; they stood up straight and tall. I added the plum and I am very pleased with the way this one turned out. 
Thanks for looking at my paintings!

Sweet Smelling Rose

Glowing Pink, 12 x 12 " oil on cradled panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

will be available at Franklin Square Gallery, Southport

The shadows on this were fun to paint and so was the rest of it; I love painting roses.
I will be taking some new paintings to the gallery at the beach this week and the new show will be hung next Monday.
There are lots of art related things going on right now and it is hard to keep up with everything when it all comes at once. 
Thank you for following my blog. I am happy to be back to my daily painting and posting.

From The Garden

Tiny White Vase, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2014, Fay Terry

$100 plus shipping


Today was the first day since I arrived home from Maine that I actually worked in the garden.
These flowers were inundated with weeds so I took care of that; naturally I wanted to cut some to bring inside and they insisted on being painted, which was  fine with me. They know they're my favorites.

What a great week-end this has been with a trip to the beach and getting home in time to paint these peaches from a set up in my studio.  I finally tried another one of my striped towels, bright pink this time.
Hope you've had a fun week-end!
