The Spode is a relative newcomer to my prop cupboard, while the Blue Willow has been around for many years. Stacking these two over glass and working with the very different blues was a fun color experience. This one is acrylic on claybord panel, and measures 7″x5″. SOLDtwoblues.

These black table grapes were so dramatic, even in their bag in Winco’s produce section I knew I’d be bringing them home to paint, and if I was lucky they’d be good eating too. Yes! Sweet and delicious but oh so good to paint. That black holds reds and blues in its depths so with a pale background and a glass surface the stage is set. This piece is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas and measures 6×6″. SOLD. This image is now available as a print on Imagekind.

This painting had its start at Whole Foods in the spring when they had a special on cabbage (probably for St Patrick’s Day). There was a huge box out by the door of beautiful, rose-like cabbages and this one was the best, as far as I could see. I’ve posed her on a glass surface and added a passing ladybug as a jewel. It is 12″x12″, acrylic on canvas and has now been sold.Cabbage
