Copper, Tomatoes, & Onion Oil Still Life

8 x 10 Oil

Despite having company for the week, I did manage to get this one done this afternoon during a short break.  The vine was full of tomatoes earlier this week but has dwindled down to the last two, so I tossed in an onion and my trusted old copper pot.  This had been a find at a second hand store several years back when I was looking for just such little old treasures.  I'm glad I found it since it's a favourite in many of my works.  I hope you enjoy this one, and if you do there are also other close up shots on eBay for you to enjoy.  Have a great night!

Giant Painting Sneak Peek

Hi everyone!  This photo is of a very small part of a large painting I am currently working on for a show this June.  This piece is a large 48 x 60, and also has a violin in it.  The tiny white specks you see are wet paint.  Progress is coming along superbly on this and I'll try to show photos as I go along. I'm also still working on some daily paintings, at least a few a week, until this will be done. So, I'm busy, busy in the studio! I'll probably be back tomorrow with a daily.  Have a great night!

By the way, I often post other photos on my Facebook page.  Just click the link on the right column and please come like my page so you can get the scoop on more things!

Hello my friends! It has been a while since I've posted anything.  I was laid up for a while due to surgery, but I am now mended and back at it! Let me tell you though, it was quite frustrating not being able to paint.  Life is amazing now that I'm back in the studio!

I'm busy painting for an upcoming show this summer, and a couple of competitions but I am going to be starting daily paintings and small works for eBay again.  I have relisted this lovely piece and I hope one of you out there will be a lucky bidder! Please click here to have a look on eBay.

P.S. Here is what the painting looks like framed. . .

Onion, Painting of the Day

5 x 7 Oil on hard board

There are some simple objects found in paintings that can command your attention and just leave you staring at its beautiful simplicity.  I find myself fascinated a lot by such simple objects, objects such as apples, oranges, lemons, and yes, onions.  There is texture, there are variations in colour and tone, and the way it reflects light in its various parts.  Yes, onions can be a fascinating subject.  If you like this one, click here to bid on eBay.  Thanks!
