White "Four O'Clocks" - the "Alba" variety. Painted in watercolor. I love white flowers - they are surely my favorite. Always envisioned a garden filled with all white flowers.

I sure do love to paint veggies. They are the perfect subject for watercolor students. Their colors are so vibrant, and their shapes and textures are so inviting. I think onions are so beautiful! This painting is available. Please email me at Rhayestx1014@aol.com for information.

Three persimmons. Painted in watercolor, of course. I was intrigued by the colors. Sort of a mixture of madder and ochre. They look like a combination between a tomato and a peach or an apple, but they are actually fruit that grow on trees. They have a funny little cap of leaves around the stem.

I've finally gotten around to making some prints. I found a printer, not too far away,
that makes really pretty prints on Futura 100 lb semi-gloss paper.
I decided to start with my favorite landscape that I painted years ago.

Periwinkles (also known as "Vinca") in a terra cotta flower pot. Here in Texas, these cheerful little flowers are wonderful summer annuals. They love sunshine and heat. I love their clean, crisp happy little faces.

I painted this coffee cup recently, in remembrance of a collection of these cups that my grandma had. I think she got them as "gas station giveaways". Gas stations used to give dishware away to their customers as a promotional item. They gave away depression glass, carnival glass, jadeite, and melamine-type dishware. Boy, have things changed!!! When I look at this, I smell coffee.

Twice in the past, I've painted a series of birds for customers. This baby bird reminded me of how much fun that was. I wish I had kept this one. I'm thinking I will work on a series of "Baby Birds" --- that would be great fun! I'll start tomorrow!
