Three Olive Martini-time


This painting is reserved for a very good friend, who said she wanted it but may have forgotten about it... :)
I'll hold on to it for her.  It's been a Three Martini YEAR! :)
Time is flying so fast, but there's more and more to do and see and experience... I'm very, very grateful for my life and everyone in it.  I have been blessed with wonderful family and friends, both near and far. So, yes, this is a painting from a while ago, but it spoke to my mood, more than the wipers I've been producing.  Someone told me that when you are frustrated with your paintings you are at the cusp of something new.
Let's hope it's something both new and wonderful!

  1. Your paintings are delicious Kelley. OK, now I'm thirsty. I like this - "when you are frustrated with your paintings you are at the cusp of something new". It would get pretty boring if we were always satisfied with our work, wouldn't it. Probably would mean we were in a rut and not growing.

  8. Wonderful painting of the martini!
    Yes, you can count on something great on the way-Julia Cameron calls it being in "the chop" and the frustration simply means you are moving to a higher level of creativity. Enjoy the ride!

  11. Love this painting and love martinis with lots of olives. (Vodka or Gin?)
    I always say that painting is a love/hate relationship. When people say how much they love every minute of the process, they can't be working very hard!!
    Good luck with the new!

  15. This is just stunning, a classic Kelley painting! Your usual perfect glass, highlights and reflections. I love it! Excited to see what will soon be revealed! You are right, frustration is only a stepping stone to something new, and better, however it's hard to imagine being better than this one!
