My May focus was flowers from my own reference photos. Here are the nine completed paintings of flowers growing in our flower garden except for the daisies that grow naturally by the road where we live. I took many more photos to use as references later, as my June focus will be landscapes.

Here’s the first, actually completed for a May assignment in an online oil painting course I’ve enrolled in with Bill Inman. I’ll continue to study and learn from his approach in June. *Many opportunities to begin again as I am learning!
The above paintings, plus more, are up for auction in my Daily Paintworks Gallery.
I’ve posted process steps of some of the above flower paintings and will be posting June Landscapes at: June RollinsART.

Since my husband, Rob, and I are currently reading and following Dr. Mark Hyman’s, Eat Fat, Be Thin, it’s only fitting I commit this quarter to working in oils.
So far so good with the painting and the 10 Day Detox.
I’ve tried oils off and on through the years, diets, too. Between us we’ve lost 17 lbs and are feeling empowered and energized being off sugar.
I’m feeling pretty good about this first painting too 🙂

If interested in seeing my oil painting progression, I’ll be posting new oil paintings at June Rollins ART. They will eventually be for sale, but need to dry first.
And if you are feeling like we were, discouraged by excessive weight gain or tired and achy all the time, check out the links above. You know it’s gotta be working, for me to mention on my art blog 😉
Happy Spring To All!
