What can I say another bird's nest. This summer my mother found the robin's egg in this painting next to the water bowl she puts out for the birds. I guess the robin accidentally gave birth while getting water. The egg shape was a little off so maybe there was a problem. Anyway it is now being used when I paint the birds nests. I hope the majority of homes survive during this hurricane!

I really enjoy painting this Antique Chinese Soy Sauce Vessel. As posted a few months ago I purchased this after years of looking for one. It was expensive, but well worth it. The blue and white jar is also an antique from a relative. It is a perfect size for many of my paintings. These roses came from the backyard. At the beginning of the season they were more pink and now they are more yellow, but every time they bloom they are a different color off of the same rose bush.
This morning reading a post from a fellow Atlanta artist on Facebook, I wanted to alert my friends. She went to a restaurant this weekend to find that an image of her painting had been stolen and printed I assume on canvas and was hanging in the restaurant. Apparently this has happened to another Atlanta artist. If I find out more information I will post it. What kind of person would do this?

I wanted this painting to have a feeling of tranquility and mystery so I decided to go with the grey background. The vase with the design on it is actually wooden. My mother found it at an antique store in Dothan, Alabama on the way to our vacation in Cape San Blas, Fl. It was the perfect find. I am ready for another vacation.
