17/30 Staged

I think that I have finally figured out photographing my artwork in Ohio. If it is a really sunny day, I get the best photos in my studio. If it is overcast, the back porch is the prime photo spot. They are not always perfect, but recently, I have noticed more accurate colors when comparing my paintings to their photographs. 
As you can see, I am still hooked on daisies and fabric folds.

15/30 Green on Pink

These apples were not purchased with the intention of creating a still life but I ate one of their companions and it actually tasted bad. Who knew apples could taste bad? My husband ate one, or part of one, at lunch and gave the same review. It was disappointing since we purchased them from the farmer. After their modeling stint, they became squirrel treats. Those guys ate them all up. No one ever accused squirrels of having good taste.

Daisies are my favorite flower. I find them cheerful and appreciate their staying power. Our neighbors just happen to have a beautiful crop of them. Good thing for me, the neighbors don't do a daily head count.

When you've got fruit to paint, adding some folded fabric or crumpled paper around the fruit makes for interesting texture and design. It becomes a puzzle for the artist and the viewer. I like that.

12/30 Orange Galore

8 x 8"
oil on panel
This is my painting from class yesterday. Those subtle shifts in orange were maddening by the end of the painting. I was seriously happy when I reached the end of that orange fabric. Funny thing about it, I found myself wishing that I had a pumpkin on hand to paint with all the pretty orange that I had mixed up on my palette.
