Asparagus (left)

Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6"

Here is the sister painting to yesterday's. This photo is probably a bit more accurate. This show how inconsistent my old camera is. A little secret, though...I have a new, better camera coming soon. Trust me when I say I can't wait for that.

This is my first time painting asparagus. It's a subject that I really enjoy and will do more in the future...guess what tomorrow's painting will be.

Sock Puppets

Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 8"x8" SOLD

The challenge for this month was chosen by Diana Moses Botkin and was striped socks. Not something I would usually paint but, then again, that's why I'm in this challenge group. All I could think about were sock puppets. Then when I shot my reference, all I could think about was the amazing artist Ali Cavanaugh. And of course, her work was a strong influence for the overall look of this painting.

This shot was taken at a stop light on my was home from work. It was about 5:15 and the sun was setting. A beautiful shot.

Sparkling Danglers

Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

I got these earrings from a company called LuShae Jewelry, specifically from their earring section. It's an online jewelry store but it takes all the risk out of purchasing over the web. They are crystal clear with the photos and sizes, not to mention they have a gorgeous selection to choose from. I recommend you give them a try.

Mr. Potato Head

Oil on 1/8" Board. Approx 6"x6" SOLD

Ever since my daughter got her Mr. Potato Head, I have been dying to paint it. It is so iconic to me. Maybe there will be a series here...maybe.
