Bag of Lemons Daily Painting Still Life

For today's daily painting, I was in the mood for cheery, yellow lemons.  This is of course painted alla prima, and I find yellow paint tricky when painting alla prima.  I'm quite satisfied with how this finally turned out and I love the mood in this piece.  I hope you like it too.  It's now up on eBay.

Bag of Fruit Still Life

11 x 14 Oil on Linen

This painting had been started a few months ago and I've just finally managed to get around to completing it. The inspiration was a study/daily painting. Like I said before, many of these daily paintings might end up as larger, more elaborated still life paintings. It is available so contact me if interested.

Great news was also received today. My painting "Shells" sold! Thank you Artists on Elgin! You can also now see Still Life with Turquoise hanging at this gallery. If you are in the area, you just MUST drop in at Artists on Elgin (168 Elgin St., Sudbury, Ontario) and have a look! I am told that as soon as people walk into the gallery, they just gravitate toward this painting. Hopefully it sells quickly!

In closing, I must bid farewell to a great leader of our time, if not the greatest leader ever. RIP Mr. Nelson Mandela, Sir. Your legacy and wisdom will live on forever. ♥

Bag of Pears Painting of the Day

As is often the situation, I woke up this morning not knowing what I would paint.  This is the result.  I enjoy painting these bags of fruit and am actually working on a larger piece on linen.  It's a slight variation from these fruit bag paintings, meaning I don't paint the same thing twice.  I'm looking forward to its completion so I can post it, but in the mean time, if you like this once you can click here to bid on Ebay. Starting bid is only $25.00!

Bag of Plums Painting of the Day

Since I have so many plums, plums it is!  I'm having so much fun with these fruit in a bag that I'm also considering pears and peaches.  The apple one also has inspired me to paint a larger one which is similiar, but not the same and will have some variation and added fruit.  Stay tuned!  Did you know that you can collect these little gems for an extremely low price? Collecting original art has never been so affordable. You can bid for this one on eBay by clicking here.
