Summer Fruit Portrait

5 x 7 oil on hardboard
I can't help it. These luscious little fruits nag at me daily for a portrait. This nectarine sat patiently on a white plate while I rendered its wonderful summertime color. I am wondering if another nectarine will come along today or if it will be some other kind of jewel begging for attention.

When summer fruit starts arriving in the store I fall in love. These big beautiful nectarines--plump and juicy--are my fantasy.

Blue Bell Field

Finding time to paint lately has been difficult with graduations, Father's Day, and all the end of the school year expectations, but I was able to sneak into my studio this morning and paint this field of blue bells. It was a fun little painting--5 x 7 oil on hardboard.

This is a typical Northwest afternoon--stormy sky over the evergreen hills.

Cool Apples

8 x 10 oil on Gessoboard
It is pouring rain today. The drizzle feels cool after some record breaking hot days last week. With that in mind, I painted some cool apples.

Square Plate Apple

I haven't painted a still life for a while, but had an inspiration this morning.
