Floral Still Lifes Make Me Smile

These paintings are my all time favorites from a workshop. Just love the how they each turned out so different...but all sooo beautiful!

Here was our set up...


Sketching out our design-shapes only, not detail.

Baby wipes work well for mess ups.

Next step...add color

Now the fun part-details and flair!

Drum roll please...

This (above) was painted by a 6-year old...should have seen her sweet smile!

I love the color combos so much I was inspired to paint one myself.

This is in acrylic on a 16 x 20 canvas. If you are interested in purchasing it just email me.


  1. Your site is fantastic!! Thanks so much for sharing your superior artistic talents. I wonder if you could tell me what you have the kids sketch their design on the canvas with before they paint?-is it yellow paint or chalk? Just curious-as you seem to have them paint over it easily and it doesn't come through or resist paint as a crayon would. I appreciate you letting me know as I'd like to try my hand at your still lifes with my students here at the end of the year. Thanks

  2. These are beautiful!



I get so excited when I receive a comment and I do read each and everyone of them! I wish I had time to respond to each one personally. Thank you so much for visiting and I hope you will be back soon!
