My latest oil painting

This afternoon I finished my third oil painting.I painted this bowl of pomegranates especially to hang in the kitchen. I can't wait to get it framed. I am loving this class. I minored in art in college and after I was married I dabbled a little but after the children were born I used my creativity in different ways and didn't paint. All these years I've been longing to pick my paint brush back up but it wasn't until art classes were offered in our town that I got up the courage to begin. I've been going for a few months now and am finding it most relaxing. Taking two hours each week to do something I love and having an encouraging teacher is so fulfilling.



  1. peggy that is simply beautiful.
    and i'm not even sure I would frame it!
    i love it just sitting on that shelf. very artsy looking. french provence style... lovely!

  2. Lovely, Peggy! I'm so proud of you for making time for this love of yours and obviously you're not on a beginning painter level. I think I told you once that I only painted when I was pregnant. Ha! Not going to be turning out many paintings from now on.

    Must add that I do love your word for 2016, Savor. In a nutshell, that word, what contentment in life is all about.
