The Lemon

"The Lemon"
oil, 8x10

Set this still life up and painted it from life.  My son made this beautiful
bowl in his pottery class. He did so well with pottery but 
never pursued it, he was more into sports. I was drawn to the
 lemon casting a striking reflection on the table and on the bowl.

"Cow in the Meadow"

"Cow in the Meadow"
oil, 8x8

On a trip to California we stopped off at Duncan Mills. There
were cows grazing in the meadow, got a few photos shots of
them. They don't seem to be shy at having their pictures
taken. This one here seemed to love it.

Teacup and Comfort

"Teacup and Comfort"
oil, 8x10

I set this still life up and painted it from life. My sister-in-law gave me
this beautiful teacup along with many more that I plan on painting.
I used the plant to add direction with the leaves to encircle the teacup
leading to the book. The teacups shadow also keeps it in the circle. The plant
and book seem to be comforting the teacup just like those
that love you.

"Vintage Iron"

Vintage Iron
oil, 8x10"

My brother gave me this Sunbeam iron that was from the 50's.
He is a collector of antiques and vintage stuff, which I am
also fond of. I am sure it still works, haven't tried it yet, 
just caught my attention to paint it. I love the shiny metal, black
handle and old cord. 
Yesterday is gone but memories still exist.

Geranium Cuttings

"Geranium Cuttings"
oil, 8x10"

Before the first frost I cut these geraniums and set
them up as a still life. They seemed to turn and
the buds were starting to open, so I couldn't waste
time in painting them. Love the reds against 
the green compliments.

These beautiful pansies were on my deck with back lit lighting
casting these wonderful shadows.
