Lemons & Bowl
8 x 10 Oil
Carole Rodrigue ©2015

I love to paint lemons, I cannot lie! I still hate how the Blogger photo uploader makes photos look.  This photo looks much better on my website and on eBay.  Psst, there are close up shots on eBay too. I attached the link to my "Me" page below the photo.

But it is true, lemons have become a favorite of mine to paint.  I've got a couple of larger projects on the go right now, but I think I'm going to paint a much larger still life with lemons.  Like a 24 x 24, or maybe even larger.  That would be something!

Hope you like this one!

Bosc Pear Daily Painting

Pear No. 4 
6 x 6 Oil

There's something about painting Bosc pears that I just love, almost as much as I love painting apples.  The way they glow their golden splendour against a dark background gives them a classical feel that I absolutely love.  I love the feel of them so much that I'm starting to paint one just for myself.  I really must have one in my dining room.  This one, however, is up for auction on eBay in case you would like one also.  Bids start at only $25.00.

Pear No 3
6 x 6 Oil

Today I was compelled to paint a pear, backlit by window light.  I love painting backlit scenes.  It's something I've always done, even back when I was painting horses regularly.  There's something about backlighting that is dramatic and captivating.  I hope you enjoy this one, if you do, the link for the eBay auction is in the painting's description.  Have a great evening!  <3

Hello friends, this will be my last daily painting available for auction for a while.  I'll be having surgery Thursday and will be away for a few weeks recovering.  I hope to bounce back quickly and hit the easel and paints as soon as possible!  If you're interested in this one, please click here to bid on eBay.  And in the voice of Arnold, I'll be back! Thank you!

Lunch, Eggs & Salt Shaker Still Life

8 x 10 Oil on masonite

Here is my second painting of 2014, an 8 x 10 still life.  I've mentioned before how I love the challenge of painting eggs.  These simple object can be easily messed up if not done quite right, and I'm satisfied with these.  Painting the salt shaker was also a joy, trying to get the exact values and shadows in the white, as well as getting the glass and steel just right.  

I haven't done any daily paintings yet this year but I think I'm going to do one this weekend.  It's been a while since I've done a daily, so I'm up to the challenge again.  I hope you enjoy this one, and you can click here to view on eBay where it's listed for auction with a very low starting bid of $49.99.
