Hi everyone, if you are in and around Victoria, and enjoy my work, please join us at Eclectic art Gallery where my paintings are on show and enjoy a social glass of wine, would love to meet you, talk about art and the meaning of life.
Pleased to announce my show was a success and sold six pieces!
I bought some tulips to brighten up my kitchen and as I unpacked the rest of the groceries, I set up my still life, lol. You had to be there. The teacup placed to balance out the whiteness of the tulips. The foliage came out the garden.
Oil on panel 6″x12″
I first saw this little model T truck parked at a restaurant, I imagined how the painting would look. I placed myself and my dog in the scene as I do love the ocean and love painting gentle ocean breezes in the sails and soft sandy beaches.
I was making myself breakfast and as I sprinkled salt and pepper on the avocados, I looked down at the arrangement on the colorful plate and reached for my paintbrushes. This is one of my favorite snacks :- )
It was the smell of pumpkin pie and the Halloween celebrations that motivated me to paint this still life. I chose the perfect pumpkin at the local farmers market and a good friend of mine who taught me custom framing, selected the rustic shelf especially for my still life. I’ve used this shelf for several paintings since. I bought some fabric from a local fabric store, a vine wreath from a craft store which I pulled apart to create my design. I set-up my still life near a window and using natural day light to illuminate my subject. Pinned a few leaves on the fabric and viola, this is how it turned out.
