"Friendship Offering", 9x12, oil on gallery wrapped canvas, floral painting by Maryanne Jacobsen

"Friendship Offering", 9x12, oil on gallery-wrapped canvas

After a busy couple of weeks, it was good to get back to painting today! It was wonderful spending time with loved ones and friends over the holidays, but it's always a bit of a relief to get back to normal , too.

This past week was a busy one, but one that will leave many cherished memories in my mind. Over the weekend we invited friends to the house for dinner and a special friend brought me some lovely autumn flowers. Today I decided that I could not let them go to waste, so I painted them, adding the tangelo and grapes, as you can see below:

This painting was done in earth colors, on gallery wrapped canvas.

Maryanne I love what you did with this! Its magic.

I also missed your last post with purple and orange. Such a striking combination, why don't we use it more often? Your still life's are wonderful. I hope you continue to do them now and again.

Thanks so much Karla, Susan and Elizabeth. This painting was such a relaxing joy to do, after the hectic schedule of the previous week. Whew! I'm glad I survived Thanksgiving 2010!
