Pins & Needles

Oil on linen panel

This little tomato pin cushion belonged to my Mom and was a common sight in our household. She did a lot more sewing than I did (or do), but it comes in handy when a button comes loose.  As usual, when I am painting something with sentimental value, it soothes my soul.

Diamond Star

Oil on gesso board
6" x 6"

This "diamond" pin was given to me by my oldest son, Travis, when he was about eight.   I get good vibes when I look at it, and I especially enjoyed painting it.  Having my objects sitting on a mirror was a bit challenging, but it was an interesting process.  It's all about learning!!
