"Cool Kiwi"

Have I mentioned how challenging Kiwi's are for me? I guess I'll just have to keep painting them.

Pardon the pun, I couldn't resist. I went to Bartlesville, OK to the Talisman Gallery to deliver some paintings for an upcomong show, so I did not get to paint yesterday. Taking care of the business side of things is the hardest part of being a working artist for me. I'd rather be in the studio, with someone else selling and advertising. In my dreams!

"It Looks Like Rain"

So many possible compositions to play with, I'll probablly do more paintings with these. I did buy some cool bowls today, they are just clear colored plastic, but when the light shines through it casts pretty color. I won't tell you the mega chain store I bought them from, wouldn't want to give them free advertising.

"Me Next"

These dainty yellow Violas are one of my favorite flowers. Spring is in full swing so I'll be painting more flowers. I think taking the pictures and posting them daily is the most challenging thing for me in this daily painting project.

"Kiwi Glow"

Late posting new work, my memory card was full and oops I can't find my other one, so off to the store I went. Kiwi's have alot going on inside, so it was a challenge to simplify what I was seeing. Again I let the light shine through from behind illuminating the slice of kiwi.

"Flow blue and Oranges"

I tried to use complimentary colors in this piece. The light was really pretty as it shined through the orange slice. Sorry about the glare, it was hard to avoid it.

"En gaurd"

I like the shape of these paper umbrellas, open or closed they make great composions. These two looked like they were fencing, thus the title. I was having trouble getting the luminosity of the umbellas. The photo dosn't show this as well as it looks in person.

I couldn't wait to finish this painting so I could eat the avacado, yummm! This was one of those rare times when the painting painted itself, what joy. We artists know this dosn't happen often.

"Peek-a-Boo Peas"

These peas peeking out at me reminded me of a babies Halloween costume I had seen a few years ago. The stem was a hat, too cute, anyway these peas looked like they were peeking at me from inside their protective cover.
