Broccoli and Friends

Ever painted broccoli, those of you who paint? I was more excited about painting this one, than I am about the results. Maybe it needs more green? Done by request.

Orange Slices on Black Canvas - SOLD

Orange Slices on Black Canvas
Oil on Stretched Canvas (Black Gessoed), 6" x 6"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

Oh, I like this one. This is how I want to be able to paint all the time, loose like this, but maybe a little more deliberate. I lfet little touches of the black canvas, and I think it adds.

Apricots - SOLD

Oil on Stretched Canvas, Black Gessoed, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping.

I found this black gessoed canvas at Michael's yesterday, while I was interviewing for a new teaching gig (the earthquake happened while I was there, it was more a big noise than a tremble, I thought it was a huge wind gust.) I thought I'd try painting on it with some of the black showing through. I learned that it's probably easier to paint rich mid value colors, than very light colors over black. It was hard to get the apricots light enough.

Garlic and Shallots - SOLD

Garlic and Shallots
Oil on Canvas Panel, 6" x 8"

This one, small as it is, was a real challenge. I think because the value shifts and color differences are sooo subtle. But I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Done by request.

Onions and Tomatoes - SOLD

Onions and Tomatoes
Oils on Gallery Wrapped Canvas, 11" x 14" x 1.5"
SOLD at $80.00 plus shipping.

I feel like I should be cooking up some spaghetti sauce with this one. It was a nice slow paintng today, the polka dots make me slow down. This one is gallery wrapped, and the painting wraps around sides, top and bottom. No frame needed.
