Reflecion on a Sugar Bowl

12" by 12" oil on stretched canvas. I hadn't used oils in some time. I always forget how vastly different acrylics and oils are in the way the paint holds it's brushmark with texture and color separation. SOLD

John's Daffodil original painting

8" by 8" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas with 1 and 2/3 inch edge. SOLD
My daffodils were quickly gone; it's nice to have friends with flowers.

Red Bell Open original painting

12" by 12" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas with 1 and 2/3 inch edge.

Sometimes a painting idea comes from a desire to combine colors rather than specific subject matter. I've been wanting to use brown and red together for some time. I finally noticed the brown and white transferware plate hanging in the bathroom when I had the perfect red bell pepper. The teal background wasn't part of the original impulse, oh well, each painting has a life of it's own you have to respect. SOLD

Orange Umbrella

8" by 8" acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, 1 and 2/3 inch edge. This photo is really hard to get right to match the painting. The yellow is not this strong. SOLD

I've been away so long I almost forgot my password to log in to Blogger. We've had computer trouble, hopefully it's fixed now. I have a backlog of a few paintings to add over the next few days. Right now I need to go find a very noisy cricket hiding somewhere in the kitchen. I thought they were summer bugs.
