An Apple a Day

6"x6" oil on board

This is the last painting until next year! I thought this would be an easy one to slip in before Christmas but NO it was not!! I struggled with it. The apple was ok but I probably won't paint another composition with the spoon placed like this! Terrible trouble with getting the silver spoon to look shiny.

Perfect Pair

6"x6" oil on board

Avocado and pepper from the Farmers Market...more food I love and so delicious together!
I have gone back to painting with oils, I gave the water soluble ones a try because of not having to use solvents but I have found I can use ordinary oils without solvent. I use an odourless medium and clean brushes with sunflower oil. Super easy!!

First cherries this season! They were delicious, as they always are. Still finding it difficult to get back into the flow of  painting, I feel like a beginner again only it seemed easier back then because I didn't know as much. Still too tight for my liking!

My snack! I was at a loss for something to paint and spent half the morning setting up different subjects. I was frustrated and about to give up ...then looked at my salami cracker snack, added a couple of olives and here it is! I had make another one to eat!!

Some of my favorite flavours...all from my garden! I love using citrus fruit and herbs when I cook. I will be painting more small food works during spring as the new vegetables grow!

Another favorite subject I like painting! Love the way cows lie down on the grass during the afternoons, they always look so relaxed. I think humans could take a lesson from them!

Strolling Oystercatchers

6"x6" oil on board

I love the birds, they have such character! This is from a small study I did last year...I came across them strolling along the beach when I was out walking.
