Still Life Daily Oil Painting "Le Belle Poivron Rouge", 6x8"




I find I have missed painting still life, so it has been fun catching up on it over the last week.



If I could just stop sleeping, I would have an additional 5 or 6 hours a day to paint.




Maybe then I would have enough time to paint both my still life and my landscapes.....but what about the abstract/mixed media  I also want to try?  Maybe I better work on growing another set of arms instead!


Life is hard when you're retired!!

Ha! let me know where you find those extra set of arms, for I'm definitely in the market for some too Carol. Love the vibrant red and your technique.

This is really beautiful. Love the colors you chose, and the soft/hard edges throughout. If I painted still lifes this well, I'd miss painting them, too!

(btw, your blog formatting seems to have changed recently and now there's a horizontal scrollbar...makes it much harder to read)
