"Lavender & Lime"

“Lavender & Lime”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

Try as I may, it has been difficult to do any paintings this past week as my Australian and American family converges on Mt. Martha, Victoria for my nephew’s wedding tomorrow. I have had to find a quiet corner in the garden to do today’s painting…

"In Doc's Hutch"

“In Doc’s Hutch”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

Having not regularly done a still life, this was a challenge. In someone else’s kitchen where I never painted before it was even more so especially with them all watching me create. Luckily, I was offered a glass or two of wine as I worked and the painting flowed smoothly out from under my brush…

"Slices"

A little fun in the kitchen last night…

"Pear Piece"

“Pear Piece”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

It was not nice outside today… So I decided it was time for a still life. I had been saving these pears for just such an occasion. The fabric and layout fell easily into place, an unusual happening…

"Half and Half"

“Half and Half”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

On rainy days I enjoy setting up still lifes to paint. Figs can be a challenge because of their dark color, but cut open they offer a different story. I really wanted to eat this, but had to wait until I had finished. It was good!…

"Butter Up"

“Butter Up”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 USD

Today was another rain out day among other things. So I thought a still life appropriate. Except that the still life I wanted to do in day light, had to wait for night lights. A friend visiting the island was rushed to hospital emergency room and I had pick her up when she was finally discharged at 2:30 am. She is ok, thanks for asking!…

"Chocolate Strawberries"

“Chocolate Strawberries” , this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

My friend, Tiberia from Barking Rocks Winery, had a 5 foot by 5 foot by 2 foot crate of strawberries he had hand picked in his wine room! As I was leaving after helping syphon out some muscat wine, I thought maybe I should paint some strawberries before he crushes them all. By the time I finished this piece the chocolate had melted under the heat from my lights. It tasted great with the strawberries though!…

Bought these fruits today and the Tangerines were just so vivid I wanted to accentuate their vibrancy…

"Apples Wine & Swiss"

“Apples Wine & Swiss”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $595.00 US

I bought a bunch of different cheese the other day. This swiss was fun to paint, and to think about eating after! The apples were a bit of a challenge with some spots of yellow going into the shadow areas. Of course I didn’t drink any wine yet, or you wouldn’t be looking at this painting!!!…

“Inner Sweetness”, this is a Small painting, 6″x 8″, oil on canvas panel. This painting has SOLD.

I’ve been juggling fruit around in my studio, figuratively, for a few days. This day the lemons caught my attention. I decided to do a low key approach. I think it work out well…
