Roses, Silver Vase & Lime

Oil on Canvas, 11" x 14" - SOLDEmail:
Comments by email:
"Being a painter myself I know the challenges you faced painting this composition. The folds of cloth, the curved reflective surface of the vase, the gauziness of the rose petals, and the geometric surfaces of the lime each require a different turning of the eye to capture on canvas. Bravo! Bravo!!" Benjamin Burr, Charlestown, SC

Pear on Paper

Oil on Canvas Board, 8" x 10" $690 - SOLDEmail:
This painting is an odd combination of objects, but was a joy to paint. I loved looking closely at the folds of the paper and the intricate pattern on the silver spoon. The reddish background is an overall layer I applied long before starting the painting. I liked the reddish glow so did not paint over it other than where the objects are. I've always like this little painting.

"I love this painting!!! You are very talented." Anne Henderson

This is a painting I've always loved because of the colors, the glass jar and the scarf which has a Matisse design on the silk. I'd found the jar long ago at a flea market and always liked the square shape and the gray metal lid. All the angles made it difficult to paint but it was great to discover areas where the scarf colors were reflected. That's the lesson that painting anything made of glass always provides - you really have to look. There's no guessing what will be reflected or seen through the glass.
