Here are some paintings I have finished the last part of November. I can't believe it's December! I hope your holiday season is going well. We were so happy to have our daughter here for Thanksgiving.

Thank you all for participating in my sale and for your kind comments. It's still going on and the details are in my shop announcement. The top two paintings are still available. I finished the first one today and am excited about using a lighter touch...it's hard for me to balance the pattern and detail I like to use without getting fussy. Here's my Etsy link.

Two new Texas landscapes paintings by Polly Jones

Cisco by Polly Jones, 4" by 4" mixed media on canvas

Decatur by Polly Jones, 8" by 8" mixed media on canvas
These two landscapes were done from photographs I took on my phone during road trips. It seems like the sky and clouds have been especially jaw dropping lately here in Texas. They are available for sale here. I had a very short video on Instagram of me working on the bottom painting here.

Tea Bowls by Polly Jones

Yellow Tea Bowl by Polly Jones
Last week I went a little crazy painting tea bowls. I've been using Golden Paint Structure Gel to get a very thick texture that I'm loving. The top two are 4" by 6" and the bottom is 4" square. Not proud of my titles...it's hard guys. These are all sold.

Let the pumpkin painting begin

Comfort Pumpkin by Polly Jones, 4" by 4" acrylic mixed media

Pumpkin on Green by Polly Jones, 6" by 6" acrylic on canvas

Singing Pumpkin by Polly Jones 4" by 6" acrylic mixed media
I've been working on a few small paintings, getting ready for my annual pick your pumpkin painting giveaway. These are all in my Etsy store for now but will be a part of the lineup when I figure out when to do the giveaway. I painted them all from looking at older paintings and using my imagination because I haven't been able to get real pumpkins yet. That changed a couple of days ago and I found a really ugly green pumpkin that I can't wait to try my hand at capturing.

Hope you are having a great weekend! I'm finally updating the blog with most of the work I've been doing this last part of summer. I've been painting my heart out.  I also have some in progress larger work and am beginning my pumpkin paintings that you can catch a glimpse of over on Instagram.  The paintings above that are not marked sold can be found in my Etsy store if you are interested.  Thank you so much for continuing to follow my work. I had the loveliest studio visit with a long time subscriber to my blog who was in town last week. I am forever grateful for the opportunity of broadening my out reach online which allows me to continue doing this. It amazes me how I have made several in person friendships that started out through my internet venues.
