Golden Delicious

6 x 6"
oil on panel
$5 s/h

I'm reading Henshe on Painting and this was an attempt at capturing the light key. As I understand it so far, the basic idea is that you mix up a few main colors and apply them in general geometric blocks to represent the form, trying to really bring the feeling of the thing across through correctly capturing the light's color. Once I was happy with the color/value relationships, I fiddled around with the details. I left my spotlight off this one, and just relied on the light from the window. I'm definitely going to do more of this.

Don't these look great all grouped together on the wall? All of the paintings in the photo above come framed, as shown, at no extra cost. The frames are matte black wood with hanging hardware attached. All you need is a nail! (Click on image for a larger view)

The painting above is in a metal frame. I can put this type of frame on almost any piece on this blog for $20 extra. Click here to see the original blog post.

French Breakfast Radishes

Today was the first Saturday Market of the year here in Eugene. It was a bit cold and drizzly, but my mom and I were glad to be back browsing the local organic produce. These radishes were the most beautiful thing there. If you want to see some more "conventional" radishes, click here.

Old Fashioned

3 x 3"
oil on bristol vellum

This little painting reminds me of my time as a waitress and bartender. Cherries and oranges get muddled together in a drink called an "Old Fashioned." Sound good? It is...if you like bourbon! Here's the recipe.

Bowl of Oranges

11 x 14"
oil on Ampersand Gessobord

My husband always teases me for leaving in all the chips and cracks when I paint ceramic dishes. It's true - they're my favorite part!
