Finishing up my vegetable series here this morning.  I think I'll work within the perimeters of a series again soon!



I've had limited time in the mornings to paint lately.  This little series has been fun and cut some of my set up time down as I'm not making so many compositional choices.

I've been wanting to stay loose with my painting.  I'm finding that easier to do when I paint asymmetrical organic shapes.



My 3 year old tried brussels sprouts for the first time last night.  She actually warmed up to them after lots of additional butter and salt.

Amongus and Three Friends

I enjoyed working with these little guys!  The three mushrooms seemed as if they had their own little personalities.

"Plate and Plum" and "Cup and Plum"

I was excited to score a bright red plum while raiding the fridge and also use a more limited palette on these paintings.  My son and daughter enjoyed eating the still life after I was finished painting today.

Red Ripe

It's fun and challenging to work with reds.  My daughter always picks out the red on my pallet and says, "Ooh, I like that one mom!"  I have to agree with her.
