Here's another set of three olives. Same models, but with a different color scheme. It's fun working with the same subject matter. Repetition makes me try to see the olives differently each time.

Three Olives on Pink




Oil on Linen, 12" x 12"
$245 plus $12.95 shipping via insured Priority Mail
SOLD to a collector in California

I've taken up painting olives again, but this time they're bigger than life-size. I've always loved painting larger than life because changing scale makes me see the object differently. Also when things are larger, I can explore them as abstractions rather than precious little objects. Hmmm, guess I should just keep painting and see what happens. Sometimes it's difficult to talk about art. Best to just make more of it.

More fruit slices, this time sitting on a linen napkin I bought long ago because I liked the little holes where threads have been drawn out. This painting pairs nicely with the limes on a book. Just perfect for a kitchen!

Apple slices are always fun to paint. They're like little boats scooting about on a lake. Hmm, I must be thinking about summer.

I'm currently intrigued by flat shapes such as postcards and letters leading the eye into the painting. The colors feel new to me...which pleases me. I like the darkness of this painting whose objects are lighted from the back. And the roses seem to add just the right amount of intense color and focus.

And the lime makes its appearance once more. I like the darker colors of this painting. Oddly, I began this painting by deciding what kind of shapes I wanted to paint, and then found the objects that best suited the shapes and lines. The object that determined the color scheme was the art postcard behind the dish. My grandmother had sent it to me when I was twelve, and for some wonderful reason, I found it recently. So magical to read her words to me. So maybe I added the rose because of that.
