|Morning Magnolia, 7x8" oil on panel|
Inspiration for morning sketching is made easy with bright colors. The deep brown of coffee encircled by turquoise glaze of the cup, complemented by the bright fuschia texture of a Big Leaf Magnolia seed pod. It's like a sugar feast for the eyes.

|Turquoise Tea Cup with Cotton Boll - 7x7" oil on wood panel|
While out browsing a local thrift store, 3 fiestaware tea cups caught my eye. I was drawn like a moth to a flame by the gorgeous turquoise color. I have current fascination with turquoise and bright white color combination. Maybe it's the heat.
