"Wonder What's Inside" By Kelli Miller

Well, we are down in Florida for Christmas. So happy to be with my girls but kinda sad that we left a winter wonderland back in Denver. Very grateful that our flight left Denver safely. There was 10 inches of snow on the ground when we left.

I painted this and kept wondering what could be inside. What do you think it is??

"Solitude" By Kelli Miller

When I paint angels I really feel their presence. This angel seemed so peaceful. Like she really relished her solitude. She is sold.

"The Guardians"

These are my Angels. I love to paint angels. It seems that every November I feel compelled to paint them. I hope you enjoy them.

"Apple Study" By Kelli Miller

This is a value study I did in Carol Marine's workshop. I learned more from her in 5 days than I did in three years of classes! Love her!

"The Original Angry Bird" By Kelli Miller NFS

6x6in oil unframed

So I was going to do a series of sunflowers but for some reason the flowers I bought didn't open up. Bummer. So, I painted this very unhappy fellow instead. I've heard of the game Angry Birds but I've never seen it. I wonder if they look like this guy.

"Sunny" By Kelli Miller

6x6 oil

I absolutely love sunflowers. So get ready to see a LOT of them. Just bought a bunch of them and they haven't quite opened up yet. I'going to paint them every day just to see how they change. The flower in this painting was actually a (gasp) fake flower. It will be interesting to see if there is a difference between the real and the fake.

"Cheating... a Little" By Kelli Miller

6x6 oil

So... did you know it's easier to paint carnations if you turn the blooms away from you? Lol. That's what I did in this painting. So I'm kinda cheating:)

I haven't blogged or painted for the past two and a half weeks. My father-in-law had open heart surgery. So spent a lot of time at the hospital plus my youngest has been home for the past 2 weeks and my oldest came home for a week. Now I'm back to being an empty nester again. It doesn't get any easier. She even took her cat:(

"Red Carnation" By Kelli Miller

This carnation was very difficult for me to paint. As hard as I tried I couldn't see the layers. I lost track of how many times I wiped it and started over! I finally got it on the umpteenth time. Woohoo!!

"Priscilla" Original Still Life Lemon Painting by Colorado Artist Kelli Miller

I paint in an old boarding house. There are 14 artists in the building and we each have our own studio. Literally our own studio apartment. Only about 300 square feet. There are usually five or six artists in the building at one time. When I finish a painting I get so excited that I go around and show it to anyone that is there. Judy is a fellow painter and she is a hoot! When I took this down to show her she exclaimed "Priscilla!" That's how it got it's name!

6x6 oil priced at $100.00
