Apricots and Roses





Apricots and Roses

8x6in  oil on canvas panel  $125. SOLD

The last of my neighbors roses.
The last of the apricots - according to my hubby.
(He most likely has a little stash hidden somewhere
beyond my reach!)

If any of you are interested to know more about what
makes me (julie) tick, you may want to read the interview
on this week's Daily Paintworks News.
Starts Friday.
I have donated a painting to be in the drawing.

  2. Love this explosion of beautiful color, light and composition. Really enjoyed reading your story on the DP spot light. So nice to hear of your background and experience. You have a wonderful style going. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and comment. You are super talented and supportive! Loved hearing of how you dressed for work, went out the front door and re entered the back.

  7. How nice to get to know you better , really enjoyed the interview and you are as down to earth as I thought you would be :-)
    Of course I Iove this gorgeous painting, too.. beautiful warm tones of the fruit and I love how the deep yellow is repeated here and there in dots and as a background to keep it all together.

    You are a mature artist with a full control of what, how, and why you paint.
    And - what's interesting a most - you are still developing!
