three pearls .. little gem 64

three pearls on a string and finally she's woken from her sleep? As always in oil and 300 x 300 x 15mm - stretched canvas no framing needed. I painted the face, then started playing with glazing effects, then dribbled some more and decided to stop just there. You know how it is, before too long the painting changes into something completely different, well, this one must sell now as I feel a great big rework coming on... please someone, save her!! LOLe^)

bed of flowers - little gem #63

Naperville native Paul Sereno again has made a startling discovery: the Sahara Desert once was green.

The world-renowned paleontologist and his team came to this conclusion when they stumbled upon an ancient graveyard while searching for dinosaur bones. The graveyard, which contains the remains of two civilizations that lived more than 1,000 years apart, includes a triple burial. The skeleton of a woman lay in an embrace with two children, and evidence of pollen suggests they were put to rest on a bed of flowers 5,000 years ago in what is now the barren Sahara Desert. The slender arms of the youngsters were still extended to the woman in perpetual embrace when researchers discovered their skeletons in a remarkable cemetery that is providing clues to two ancient civilizations who lived there.

This 300x300x15mm painting is in oil, stretched and ready to hang. E^)

little gem shoes...

Two little paintings, both 10"x10" on stretched canvas, ready to hang, both done in oil. I experimented with over the top high heels, and decorated them a bit with "gems" - they do look good as a pair - pity they're both for the left foot...LOL Thanks for popping in..e^)

shooting stars - little gem 59

255x255x35mm oil on stretched canvas already hanging - can you balance on a tight rope and shoot stars, then hang them on the said rope? Thought you couldn't. Well, I can and did. Okay, in my head then... fun, this.
