This painting is a test piece for a commission I will be working on soon.  Gerberas were requested and it will be a taller piece than it is wide.  This one is a little 'shabby chic' in style and looks great in full light.

I have been planning and scheming here at the Villa and will soon be taking a new direction in life, all being well!  A little enigmatic, I know!  Wish me luck!

This afternoon was a perfect winters day, full of blue sky and sunshine.  I took my sketch pad out onto my sunroom and sketched a large jug full of native Australian flowers, bought for myself for my birthday.  It's turning out nicely, with still more to do.  Also sketched Jess the Border Collie briefly, for as long as she sat still for me!

Afterwards, I took my son for another driving lesson around our suburb.  He cruises along nicely while I chill!

Smells like dinner is ready!  Have a great weekend!


  1. luck for your new mystery venture sent on way!

  2. I like your piece, Patti. The lines with the gorgers are great! I can't wait to find out what your new direction is and I DO wish you much luck! Yes, enigmatic...I hope it involves MORE ART :) xoO

  3. You've piqued my curiosity too Patti...hope it all falls into place for you! Love the strong colours of your gerbera still life.

  4. congrats re: a commission. and oh, your hints are tantalizing!!!
