Brass & Plums



11" x 14"
Oil on Board

I took another picture of this one......the image is must better, but somehow I lose my comment.....but I think I may have a better place for shooting the paintings....

Red & Green Apples


6 x 6 oil on Gesso Board
I did this one a couple of days ago.....I like the way the red and orange looks on the apple....I'm still having trouble getting a place outside to shoot the paintings......

Of course I had to do these guys again......just love the way they look when they are wet, but as they dry, they get a dull frosted look.....think I may have to do them again tomorrow.

6 x 6 oil on Gesso Boar
Started this one in Tuesday Morning class with Donna Noice.........I had to do a couple of wipe outs before I got a composition I liked......dud! that's what thumbnails are for!!!! I know that!!! I still have trouble with the "red" family.......that's why I need more practice.

Blue Tea Container

6" x 6" Oil on Gesso Board
This was a challenge to get the shape of the vase correct....... it's still isn't quite right.....Oh, my!

Roma Tomatoes


6" x 6" Oil on Gesso Board
Well, I have my verizon up and running.......it's almost as good as Florida.
These were placed on a shiney surface, but I didn't quite get the reflections I wanted. I can't believe how rusty I feel after not painting for in oils for about 3 weeks. Daily Painting is more important than ever!
