Little Pitcher

8x8" Little Pitcher with Fall Hydrangeas  $200

The "To-Do" list is huge this week.  Making fresh paintings came off till next weekend.  I will be posting some little oldies though.  This one is a favorite - not my usual subject or style but the colors are pleasing and who doesn't love hydrangeas?  As I recall one of my sons asked me to show him how I paint a portrait and without having anyone around to paint, I painted this little pitcher which was on my mantle.  So it's got a sweet little memory attached to it.  

Plus it looks kinda Thanksgiving-y.

Sketchbook page

Sometimes I think about owls. 
I almost always sketch faces.
Occasionally they merge ...
What's in your sketchbook?

Giving it a whirl -again - Debbie Miller

"Twirl" 30x30 oil on panel $2700

Hello.   This is my twirl girl.  Remember that?  Just twirling around for the fun of it.  You got dizzy and laughed out loud. I don't know about you but I could use some more twirling for the fun of it in my life.

So anyhoo - I feel like blogging again - not just the popping in every now and then kind but making friends with my blog and the whole process of "blogging" again - It's alot, this posting paintings - all the steps it takes to get an image on the screen - not to mention the ACTUAL painting process!
  It's also in a way relaxing and focuses me to the task at hand.  I've been hanging out with my friend Leigh over at and some other rockin creatives- we're getting our money mojo on and through the process of the class, I've realized that I miss my blog. 

 Hello blog - giving it a whirl again...and maybe a twirl too, you know- for fun.

A Little Fall - Debbie Miller, plein air painting

6x6 Oil on panel. 
This is a little plein air I did a while back - haven't had a chance or made the time to get out there this year.  A shame really, it has been such a beautiful fall.
