Five Slices and a Peel

It seems like I did a painting of an orange not long ago that I found challenging and I've been avoiding oranges ever since.  I decided to go for it this morning.

Stacked Plates

I started stacking things yesterday with the pots and it bled into today too.  I'm really enjoying painting these fun colors!

Stacked Pots

I found these great colorful pots in the basement.  They remind me of the Southwest.  I must be eager for the sunshine after all this snow!

Pink Ladies and Green Tea

Worked in a 5x7 format this morning while I'm waiting for more 6x6in boards to come in.  This painting is done on mounted canvas.  It was pretty fun, but I think I like my gesso board better.

Grapefruit Slices

I found some new dishes to paint this morning which is always exciting.  Then we enjoyed the grapefruit for breakfast after the painting was finished.

Love Morsels

So I had planned to paint a series of the chocolates in honor of Valentine's Day coming up next month, but I've discovered that I keep eating them. This may be my one and only chocolates painting...we'll see.

Four Cups and a Spoon

I think this is the last of the coffee cup series for a while.  These cups I got from the D.I. have sure been great subjects.  It's been really fun practicing color mixing neutral colors and drinking lots of coffee throughout the series!

3 for Coffee

I enjoyed a delicious "Bullet Proof" decaf this morning while painting these three.  In case you haven't heard, a bullet proof is blended with butter instead of cream and it's a delight!

Cups and Raspberries

I've been really enjoying experimenting with neutral colors lately.  It's been fun to play with subtle temperature shifts and see how close I can get to accuracy with values on the cups and dishware.
