Back to cruising the Natural Foods store, picking up things like Hummus and Pesto, yum, and found this unusual lemon, with a crease, which I thought was appealing. A little dramatic lighting, and we're good to go.

I figured out how to photograph purple, a little triumph for me. I only use the yellowish lights I have, the overhead and a couple of yellow lights in my pole lights. I turn off all my daylight bulbs, and voila! I've got purple.

The Downward Glance
Oil on Gessobord, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.

I thought I was done with the pears,  but I had this Gessobord coated with red/pink tinted Gesso, and wanted to see if I liked the surface better, (I did, it wasn't as slippery)... the pears were you know how it goes. One more time with these same lovely pears. They're hanging on.

Spring Green Creek - NA

Spring Green Creek
Oil on Canvas Panel, 12" x 16"
Reworked on 6/15/17

A landscape was just the ticket for today, one with a lot of swish and foliage, and not much detail.
Inspired by all the light and delicate Spring greens out these past couple of weeks.This one is quite soft and quiet.

Strawberries on Patterned Plate - SOLD

Strawberries on Patterned Plate
Oil on Gessobord, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $25 plus $10 shipping.

The plate is part of a nice set of bowls and small bread and butter plates that I found at 2nd Avenue, a thrift shop that we loved going to in Laurel.  I had intended to do a landscape today, but I was seduced by the berries at the Farmer's Market yesterday, and actually ate the rest before the painting was done. Dark red and juicy all the way thru, so fresh.

Pears for FD - SOLD

Pears for FD - SOLD
Oil on GessoBord, 6" x 6"

Another version of the pears in dramatic light.
I think  I've gotten my money's worth out of these sweet pears.
Now to let them ripen completely, and enjoy them!
