This is a favorite Santa musical toy that my kids always loved. I have been wanting to paint it for a long time and finally decided today was the day. It is a beautiful sunny day with wonderful light  coming into my studio. This one came together quickly and was great fun to paint.

Studio Day

September Morning, BHI, 11 x 14 oil on panel, ©2013, Fay Terry

I spent the day painting in my studio on a rare pre-holiday, uninterrupted day.
This is one of two paintings I worked on today and neither of them is completely finished.
The lighthouse on Bald Head Island is a commission and just needs a little more work. I painted this scene a couple of months ago in a 5 x 7 format. This larger one was even more fun.

I took a workshop this past week-end in Cary at Waverly Artists Group and had a wonderful time painting and getting to know some wonderful artists from around the state. Our instructor was Maggie Siner who presented us with challenging painting exercises. Maggie is an excellent teacher and a fantastic artist.

The sun just came out after a couple of days of rain so I am heading out for a walk.

Traditional Bloom

Amaryllis , 6 x 6 " oil on panel,©2013, Fay Terry

$75. free shipping

This is my favorite Christmas flower and I always have several blooming in December in pots.
They get pretty tall and sometimes start falling over and have to be tied up. This one is very velvety and beautiful and we are enjoying it.
I have some paper-whites blooming right now too, but they have a very strong and unpleasant scent. These are the first ones I have had that don't smell really good, they must be a different variety than what I've had in the past. Does anyone know the name of a good paper-white narcissus bulb to plant that smells sweet?

Strawberry Lime

 Outnumbered, 6 x 6 " oil on panel
$75. and free shipping

I always make the same fruit smoothie for breakfast so I decided to try a new combination and made strawberry lime which went well with the warm temperatures we are having. I didn't even need a jacket when I went out earlier today.
I have been painting every day but  not finding time to post. I hope you enjoy these bright colors which inspired me on a warm but very gray day.
