Fruit Parade

Fruit Parade - 6 x 6 Oil on Gesso Board

This is actually an older piece I did back in the summer, when plums and peaches were in season.  It has been included in a few exhibitions that my husband and I had together.  We did two shows back in the fall, I with my paintings and him with his photography, and will have a third later this month.  It's been fun doing shows with him and he has really enjoyed it, being new to the experience.

Decisions - 6 x 6 Oil on Gessoboard

Happy New Year all!  I finally have my studio back — it was taken over with textbooks, calculators, pens and pencils.  But I rearranged and managed to clear a small space in our storage room for my office, so now I can have both studio and office.  Now I just need to carve out time every day to get back to the daily painting... easy, right?!

This piece was a good practice piece with the metallics and variety of values, not to mention that I have plenty of these props.   I thought I'd experiment with more grays to contrast with the colorful lipsticks.  I think in this case it worked out well.
