Queen of Lumps - SOLD

Queen of Lumps
Oil on Gessobord, 6" x 6"
SOLD at $20 plus $10 shipping.

My pear was not happy to be upstaged by the mango in the last still life, so I dubbed her "The Queen of Lumps" and gave her a painting in which she is the only star. You need happy fruit around you, after all.

Lake with Reflections - SOLD

Lake with Reflections
Oil on Stretched Canvas, 11" x 14"
SOLD at $50 plus $10 shipping.

I love this one, and even better, it more or less painted itself. As sometimes happens, I had an old canvas that didn't really work, and so sanded it down and reused it. I think sometimes it helps to not care so much, figuring the painting is a wash anyway. Then voila, you get a winner.

This is the one I used, so there might be tiny bits of orange or pink showing thru, here and there.

Here's Omar:
