I love that there are things growing in the garden that have no purpose other than beauty and display....at least for me.

I commend you for finding beauty in common things and also for your ability to portray it.
Cool- that you are pictured at work in the plein air publication.
Congrats on Painting the Parks inclusion!
I jjust saw your "Morning Shadows" on the joint "best of the week" site. Very Nice work!

Nice shadow colours Pam - I like the way you concentrate on not darkening your backgrounds too much, particularly in the still life paintings. It gives a real harmony to the work.

Oh the colors! Beautiful!

Love this, Pam - and totally agree with you about how nice it is to have them in the garden. I like that you can have several growing on one vine, and each one is unique!
Love your title, too :)

Thank you Jill! My kitchen, and what used to be in the dining room (now my studio), just seem to be right there in front of me waiting to be painted!

Sheila, thanks so much. In this one the shadows are quite light, but sometimes i do paint them darker. It depends on my lighting, time of day, my moods.

Oh the thanks, Sherry!

Thanks so much Claire! While this one was not from our garden, we had more than 3 dozen gourds this year!
