Some Still Lifes and Exhibit News


I will have paintings at two venues this week. The first is "I Art Congress" this Thursday evening from 6 to 9 pm at 912 E Congress and the second is the opening for the AVAA's Members Show this Saturday at Austin ArtSpace. Please come by, if you can, and say hello.

Now for the Fun Stuff! Two recently done still life paintings.

The first is a small painting of some stacked bowls that I painted at my friend, Nancy Kirk's home. We both painted the same setup and it's so interesting to see how our individual styles come through.

Her husband has put together a set up for lighting still lifes such as this. It was perfect and made setting up this little still life very easy.

A small study of some flowers I found on one of my walks with our dog, Priss.

I love doing small works like this. There's such a looseness of how the paint was laid on -- a lot of fun.


  1. Ann, these are beautiful. Love your loose and lovely subjects. Wonderful color.

  2. I love these paintings.....you are doing great work!
