"54 Strokes" By Kelli Miller SOLD

Last year I went to Carol Marine's workshop. Which was fantastic by the way! She had us count our brushstrokes. That way each stroke had a purpose. It was a great lesson for me. So, this little pear was done in 54 brushstrokes. :)

"Emily" by Kelli Miller

8x8 oil nfs

What do you do when your daughter graduates college, moves across the country, thus making you a true empty nester? Paint her portrait of course! I snapped this picture of her last month when we were in Disney Word visiting my other daughter, Anna, (she works there). And now EMily works there too!

I typically don't paint people. This is maybe my 5th or 6th attempt. I still don't know how I did it.

"Angel of Patience" by Artist Kelli Miller

6x6 oil nfs

A fellow artist gave me this Angel. I have put her in several of my larger still life paintings. But I thought she deserved to be the star of the show!

"Come Back Here" by Colorado Artist Kelli Miller

Oh how I love to paint apples. These three guys are friends but had a little misunderstanding. Hence the title. Not to worry, all is well with them now.
