This is the last painting in my red series. I love how the red from the rooster stands out in this painting and overpowers the splenda pig, initially. Your eye then moves to the rest of the painting as you think to yourself, do roosters lay eggs? This is 6 x 8 on canvas panel.

Another snow covered painting? Yes! I thought it was fitting to include another winter scene, especially with all of the snow still covering everything from the recent winter storms. This reminds us that although the snow can be dangerous and annoying, there is still a beauty to it, which I tried to capture in this painting.

I love how farms look in the winter, especially when you can see the vegetation peeking through the snow to remind us that Spring is near. The colors of the sky accentuate the shadows in the snow and it just all works so well together. This is 11 x 14 on stretched canvas.

I painted these red roses from a bouquet of flowers. I decided to focus in on two roses instead of the entire dozen, because it allowed me to show some more detail of the flowers. I thought this was an obvious choice to include in my red series, especially because of Valentine's Day. This one sold quickly, but I hope you still enjoy looking at it.

I saw this sign on the way home from work and it fit in my red theme so I decided to include it. I think I did a good job at accurately capturing the color of the Chick-Fil-A logo. Pop art can sometimes be tricky, because it is so recognizable. Therefore, people would notice if the colors were off. It is painted on 7 x 5 canvas panel.

Of course if I painted the milk chocolate M&Ms, I could not leave out the peanut ones. It is painted on 6 x 6 gessoed illustration board. Looks good enough to eat and I love the different colors. I have noticed I am painting a lot of pop art lately. It is funny I guess, but I often paint things I know and see everyday. I hope you enjoy.

As I was positioning the Hershey Kisses for this painting, the red one was hanging over the edge. It reminded me of someone falling over in love, which is right on time for Valentine's Day. The maple wood provided interesting detail for this painting and it was fun to paint. I hope you agree with me.
I love how the red and silver foil of these Hershey Kisses look while sitting on the wood. Foil is one of the more difficult things to paint, but I think I did an excellent job in capturing the light and dark colors of the foil. Someone had these kisses sitting on their desk at work and although she offered them to anyone who wanted them, I still felt as though I was stealing them...shhhh :) Doesn't this painting just make you want to eat these stolen kisses? It is just in time for Valentine's Day.
