Sunflower GloryAt last! I’m a calendar girl!   Well, not me, but one of my paintings has been published in the 2011 San Diego Hospice calendar. It just came in the mail and I’m so thrilled. It is a calendar of all the winning paintings from this year’s shows at the hospice. My show was in September, and I took a first place, tied a second and also a 3rd place winning! That just goes to show, people do like my work. This painting is 18 x 24 inches, framed and matted, 22 x 28 inches.

I did this painting of the flowers when they were fresh in a vase in my dining room about a year ago.  I love doing paintings from the real thing, there is nothing like sensing the true color of the light happening right in front of me to stir me to express what I feel.

So now, I can say that I am a girl with one of my paintings in a calendar! There are other paintings or photo images from the other winning artists in this calendar, measuring 10 x 10 inches in size.
