The Lemonade Experiment

"The Lemonade Experiment" for sale. Click here to view.

During the summer, we try to make freshly squeezed lemonade. There's nothing like the real thing, with water, lemons, and sugar. It takes a bit of experimenting to get the right concoction for our tastes. My son and I like ours bitter, my husband and my daughters like it sweet. 

Someone else was thinking lemons too. Thanks to By the Book Paper  for including my painting in her treasury! Look at all that yummy yellow!

My Avatar

This painting has been shipped off to the beach - to one of my favorite places - Florida's panhandle. The client liked my avatar (profile picture of the chandelier). The original is not for sale, but I offered to paint one similar to it. This chandelier will fit in perfectly in her beach house. It makes me so happy when people like my work!:)

Is it Spring yet?

"Veiled" for sale. Click here to view.

I named this one Veiled; the petals are a bit more delicate, and some look like they are wearing a veil. All this flower painting is making me want to keep this nice Spring-like weather we have been having. I really should know better than to wish something like that! Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Model Home Teen Room

I know I'm going about this totally backwards, but I thought you might like these images of a teen's room from that same model home I featured this past week.

This room is tucked away off the artist's studio I showed you last week:

It's not a huge space, but it is off by itself on the 2nd floor. The rest of the bedrooms are on the main level. It even has a little balcony.

I thought this photo wall was a cute idea. The "frames" are wallpapered on individually, and the photos are probably on there with tape. That way, they can be interchanged. The large mirror really opens up the small space.
I hope you have a great weekend everyone!

Model Home Kitchen

Hi everyone! Our kids have had a couple of days off this week because of the cold. I remember going to school when I was their age in colder weather than this! Of course, whenever the kids have any sort of day off where we are stuck at home, they have to bake. They make a huge mess. It makes me want a bigger, more organized, kitchen. Here's one example from the same model home I showed you last week.

Here's the kitchen. Please remember this was taken with a flash - (the pre-aperture knowledge days).The eating nook is on the other side of the island;

You can see the nook a little better on the right side in this picture:
The sink is a fun shape:
The desk area sits in a little nook:
The butler's pantry on the way to the dining area:
The girls made these "bake sale pie" cupcakes. See the mess in the kitchen? :)
