Tomatoes, Tom-AH-toes - SOLD

They rallied 'round holding hands jumping on the plate yelling "paint us, paint us".  What could I do?  Ah the tomato!  Red, juicy, luscious, full of vitamins and all things that are good for body and mind.  Flavorholics know how happy basil makes them when teamed up with a drop or two of balsamic vinegar on a round slab of quality mozarella - making you hungry yet?  One of my favorite combos...

On holiday til the 12th, but will be of course sketching as always!  Hope everyone has a wonderful time with family and friends or at the least some time to really relax and veg!

Orange Pepper - SOLD

Sometimes it is just so difficult to get a good color match.  Between the monitors needing to be calibrated, the photo itself, etc etc.  So this is the best I could do for a match.  Of course, it will be different on different monitors, but we all know that by now.  Btw, I did eat this gorgeous thing afterwards.  They say paint what you love and I do love fruits and veggies - a lot.

Garden Shears

I don't garden all that much anymore, although I still do have my green thumb.  An inheritance you might say.  I love the look, the feel, the style of the English garden shears the best.  Even the weight makes them rather important in my eyes.  Anyway, here it is, showing off...  all by itself.

$59.00 + shipping/handling fee of $8.00, 6 x 6, oil on panel.  Buy it on Etsy!

REDdy to Go - SOLD

A fun work for the kitchen or dining room.  Still life work to me is so great for oh so many reasons.  They make particularly good subjects as they don't need to scratch their noses or take breaks, lol.  Plus there's just no comparision to painting from life.  Still doing catch-up work from the open studio, but getting there.
