LEEK AND CHERRY TOMATOES, 6X8, OIL SOLD

It seems I always return to still life paintings and the ever popular fruits and vegetables.  Especially for small works, they are so much fun.

And of course, they are all double duty, first as models and secondly as lunch.

I think your produce is always absolutely beautiful. Don't you feel a little guilty when you bite into one of your glowing tomatoes?

Probably you go back to fruit and vegetable " still life ", because it is something that comes easy, something you are very good at, one just has to look at the results. Poetry in the kitchen!

Love the interview! As you know I already see your work daily and love it! I entered the names of the two paintings I just bought from you!

Karen Bruson said...

Love your still life. Nice colors and brushwork.
I did a couple paintings of that Prague Bridge...Charles Bridge, I think it is. I loved Prague.

Caitlin said...

from one artist to another, I love this one! :) The stroke in this painting is loose and beautiful. The colors are great. Keep up the great work!

Deborah Lawrenson said...

Followed the link on Karena's interview. Gorgeous work!

Kimberly Vanlandingham said...

I just put my name in the hat for the giveaway! Wish me luck! Love the painting too! Your still lifes are wonderful!

Marjorie Rose said...

I was blog-traveling and fell on Karena's blog, which now led me to yours. I just wanted to tell you that your still life paintings are so modern without being too abstract or cold. I loved the one with the banana slices, blueberries and strawberries. That could've easily been my cereal toppings! It's a wonder that I haven't been able to relate to a still life painting in a long time.

I just want to tell you that your work is beautiful. I was so focused on getting to this blog that I didn't pay attention to the contest :)

I just discovered you and your work through the giveaway on Karens'a blog. Your paintings are beautiful, and I'm crossing my fingers that your painting of the Prague Bridge finds a new home with me :-)

Karena said...
