1641 Seen to be Green SOLD

7" x 10" oil on panel, unframed

This was the shiniest apple I have ever seen at the store, do they have little elves with polishing clothes to get them that glossy?!!

1640 Peared Down

16" x 20" oil on   canvas panel, framed

Back to straight realism for a while, I might intersperse these with a few experimentations, just to please myself!
I shall be winging my way back to Europe at the beginning of the New Year, looking forward to being back home again and having a dedicated room to paint, peace and quiet with no interruptions from little people and pets. Not that I don't love em but granny duties are over for awhile  I can really concentrate on my art career and make plans and be deliciously self indulgent as well.

1638 Dissolving Lemon SOLD

6" x 8" oil on panel,unframed,  

I'm enjoying playing with my still lifes, this one is on roughly gessoed panel and painted with a brush and palette knife, the mandarin to the left is unrecognizable dressed in gold foil and the lemon decided to join the background.

1637 Kissing Cousins SOLD

6" x 8" oil on panel

Another experimental piece, this time I gessoed the panel and then scratched into it to make this effect and then painted the fruit onto the surface. I like the resulting painting, it's different as they say!

1636 Outshine You

12" x 9" oil on panel, framed
This little orange just outshines the other objects in this still life, they retreat into the background with envy!

1635 Mangoed!

9" x 12" oil on panel, framed
Another loose one, a combination of brush and palette knife. The colourful leaves I found on our patio and I thought that they would be a good combination with this lovely mango,  that echoed their hues perfectly.

1633 Foiled Again!

9" x 12" oil on panel, framed 

I loved painting the one yesterday, so I found some coloured foils in my local store and thought that I might do a series of foiled items and see where this will lead.
