This is my girlfriends daughter who lives in Bali.... I loved the pose and colors and just had to paint it! I haven't painted figures very much so it really was a challenge and I had fun with the foam!
I haven't painted fruit for a while and now spring is here the fruit season has started. One of my favorite combinations for breakfast is fresh blueberries and pineapple. It tastes so fresh and is good for you ....I usually have more than this though! I enjoy setting up food for a still life because I get to eat it after....good reason for painting!!
Whenever we travel South we always pass this rocky hillside. The rocks are huge and this lonely little cabbage tree is perched among them...I liked the light this day and I love soft clouds, so it was all there for me!
One of the pink daisies from my garden! I love this small bowl... given to me by art friend. (Thanks Gwenda) I borrowed a turquoise one like this a couple of months ago and put a white rose in it....when she saw the painting she gave me the set! The other one is yellow so I will be using that in a painting at some stage too!! All proceeds from this painting will be donated to the Red Cross for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
