My art partner, June, is entertaining family and friends this weekend as her son is getting married. So it was just me today at the studio (along with Carole King and her Living Room CD).
Just rockin' out and painting....it's a good thing our neighbor wasn't there today!

"Red Plums" 4 x 4 Oil on Gessobord
I took a couple of days off from daily painting to work on my colored pencil experiment, and Oh how I missed my oil paints. I hadn't seen the red plums in the produce section for a while so snatched them up. This is my first time for painting plums and I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

SOLD (and lost to the great USPS in the sky)
After a really lovely Mother's Day, it was back in the studio this morning. This painting was for the Daily Paintworks Challenge - Paint Your Vegetable. This is the first time I have painted asparagus in oil, so it was a challenge in observation for me. As always I look for the lights and darks and try to paint those more importantly than the object itself.
