Apple Study

"Apple Study on Table," oil 6"x6" - (update sold)

Having some fun at the end of the year painting  little oil studies.  I'll need to begin larger complex still life paintings soon.  It's been a few years since I have entered an Oil Painters of America juried show.  Thinking it's I've got my creative thinking cap on, working through some ideas and sketches.  But these little paintings are a nice diversion (procrastination) for now!

"Autumn Warmth"

"Autumn Warmth,"  11"x14" oil on linen.
In between painting for the three Small Works Holiday Art Exhibits I am in this year, I worked on a few larger paintings.  Here is one of my most recent pieces.  I brought together my rust-orange colored shawl with a piece of tapestry for added texture and interest.  I had just gathered fresh eucalyptus leaves from my neighborhood and wanted to paint them.  Keeping with a warm palette I added the golden delicious apple and lemons.  A few lovely treasured objects, a silver vase and my grandmother's Bavarian tea cup, complete my still life composition.  I greatly enjoyed painting this and the challenges it presented me.  I hope the autumn feeling draws you in....pour the hot tea!
