Onion, Painting of the Day


Onion
5 x 7 Oil on hard board
Carole Rodrigue copyright 2013

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!

Bag of Pears Painting of the Day


Bag of Pears
5 x 7 oil on hard board

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!

Lemon & China Cup No. 3 Painting of the Day


Lemon & China Cup No. 3
5 x 7 Oil on hard board

Here's my lemon passion expressing itself in today's daily painting.  I must say again that I don't know what Blogger has done to their photo upload program lately, but I really don't like the look of the photos when uploaded.  I hope they fix this or I might just stick with my website blog only.  Please do check out my website or the eBay listing for a better look at this painting because it really is a very nice little piece.  You may see this painting on eBay by clicking here.

Here is this week's first daily painting that I am posting.  I'm in the middle of something and won't be able to return to full time posting of daily paintings until the 30th of September.  This one is up for auction on eBay.  Now, I don't know if there's something going on with Blogger but the photo and the painting don't look like this!  There's a much better photo up on eBay, so at least have a look there even if it's just to see what the painting looks like.  I hope it uploads much better than what it looks like on my screen.  I will be back tomorrow with another piece!

In case you were wondering, I wake up most days having no idea what I'll be painting.  This morning was no different but within an hour I knew what I had to paint.  The tomato plants in my garden are bursting with luscious fruit and here is one of them.  I hope you like this one.  If you do, you can click here to bid on eBay. 

Also, tonight my friend Ray Thoms had his reception for his new book on Sudbury, then and now. The book is called: Sudbury, A Retrospective View.  You can look up the book to purchase it at www.sudburybook.com  

Here's a photo of me wishing Ray much success this evening at the SRO lounge where he held his reception.  Best of luck Ray!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Labour Day weekend.  I took time off from my labours and relaxed for a bit, although I did begin a larger painting.  This little treasure was painted today for my daily painting.  I found this old copper pot a few years ago at a second hand store and it's such a great little thing to add warmth and life to paintings.
