1955 FORD TRUCK by Claudia Hammer

LONELY AT THE TOP by Michael Naples

Both of my Picks today have sort of a sweet, vintage feel to them. I hope you are enjoying your Tuesday!!


Also, just wanted to let you know that Carol Nelson and S.P. Goodman have workshops offered right now! Check them out!



Peace and tranquility is the name of the game today! Loving that hot yellow in contrast to the cool blue sky. This sure looks like someplace I’d like to be today, Gena!

TOMATO COLORS by Jonathan Aller

Although these vibrant tomatoes are not moving, they are not static either! I feel like I could poke them gently and see the wrinkles on their smooth skin… How can something so simple be so powerful?

***************SPECIAL UPDATE***************

not static


I think this might be the first daily painting of sunflowers that I’ve really liked. The cropping at the top really agrees with me and the bold colors are fabulous! I could really live with this one!

YELLOW BOWL AND CORAL by Cathleen Rehfield

So many colors into such a simple composition. I find it very sweet.

I left for a couple of days to get inspired, in Portland OR. Lots of cool things in Portland to see and do! The Portland Art Museum has some great paintings to see. Portland has some very cool coffeeshops. One coffeeshop that I loved was Random Order, on Alberta St, it is kind of random, like the name. They serve pies! Sweet pies, savory pies, I didn’t know how much I liked pies until I had their Coconut Cream Pie. Cupcakes are out, pies are in.

HAULIN’ PEARS by Linda McCoy

This little truck is someone’s history. Who knows who it belonged to, how many family members played with it or what their life was like growing up. I wonder about vintage things, they come to us bearing the baggage of their past but they don’t tell. Ah, but the wear marks are telling. This truck was made by MARS. Probably in the 30’s sometime and it was really played with. The yellow is still pretty bright despite its age but some of the rusty areas are worn to the steel. Must have been left out under the porch during rainstorms.

I started this painting in summer before our pears ripened.

I have to go, there’s an episode of American Pickers on. Or is it Antique Roadshow?
