A Sale! And 2 more postcards

The day at the Farmer's and Artisan's Market had lots of "lookers" and no buyers until an hour before closing when a woman suddenly declared she had to have my largest oil painting for her husband.  I was thrilled to make this first sale:

Though I didn't sell any of the postcards, I was encouraged to make two more this week, and plan to work on both watercolors and an oil in the coming weeks ahead.  Sharing with Eva and Kristin's Paint Party Friday.  The two newest cards:

Three Sisters mountains with local barns and red-tailed hawk

Smith Rock with Mt. Jefferson in the distance

Another Piece From the Past

Haven't painted any this week, so I share a ceramic pig I made for our grandson in my ceramic and tile glazing days years ago.  I based the pig on a character in a book that had been one of his mother's favorites as a child and was later one of his favorites as well.  Joining Eva and Kristin's Paint Party Friday:

Glass Bottles

A pastel of glass bottles and an apple, I think it is. Fun to do...

From My Past

Years ago I took a break from painting to work on doing some creative ceramics...mostly glazing my own tiles.  This is a hummingbird tile I did during that period.  I am sharing it today because since I had surgery just six days ago, I have not yet been "up" to getting any painting done.  I'm sure I will have something next week for Paint Party Friday with Eva and Kristin!   Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.  All went well!
