Three Figs

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 10"x10" SOLD

A little larger painting today. I absolutely love the color variety in these figs, but most of all I love how they transition into one another. That was the painting challenge.

Behind the Flower

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

A collector of mine once suggested this as a subject. It took me way too long to finally paint it. I personally think it's a more interesting view than a typical flower.

Pewter With Pear

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

Pewter. That is a strange metal. It's not shiny and has a antique look to it. I think this is the first pewter piece I've used in a still life..and it won't be the last. Stay tuned.

This was one of those challenges that artists love. Really painting what you see. It's not an apple in a bag, it's a grouping of colors and values. Interesting.
