Small works


I enjoyed painting some little 6 x 6 inch still life panels on Ampersand cradled gessoboard recently. I started with a whole orange, and the next day painted it partially peeled:


and the next day just a slice:


I can imagine how fun these would look displayed together in a kitchen or dining room.

I painted an avocado the next day:

I really enjoyed getting back to the basics with these paintings and look forward to doing more. There's so much beauty to be found in everyday objects, it's fun to be reminded once in a while.
