Be Stress Free, 6x6 Inch Original Oil Painting by Kelley MacDonald

SOLD
Phew!  The Open Studio was a wonderful day, seeing old friends and meeting new!  I took yesterday *off* except for some work on Commissions.  Today this tea bag wrapper said "Be Quiet. Be Still. Be Stress Free." It was Chamomile, and smelled wonderful! Good advice for everyone, me included!

Here's some photos from the Open Studio - my favorite is the little cluster of girls working on a sketch book one of the young artists brought with her - I see a bright future as an artist for her!
   

AND one blogger friend, JoAnn Elig, came and brought her OWN donut painting for me to see!  She really blew me away with this one, beautifully framed, too!

(Jo Ann, I apologize, the lighting is horrible - you AND your painting looked much better in person!)

  3. I love this painting. It is very calming, just as the title says. Love the way you cropped the saucer, moving it to the top, with the red in the label assuming an important position in the lower part of the painting. Very nice!

  4. Lovely Painting Kelley. The orange, yellow and cream tones work so well with the soft blue background. I like the way the little paper tag shape mirrors the similar shape of your signature box.
