Here’s a new one. I did a small watercolor study of these grapes some time ago and thought I’d like to do them in acrylic. Once done the piece wanted more so I added the Tiger Swallowtail who is stopping by to check things out. This piece is acrylic on stretched canvas and measures 10″x 10″. This painting is up for sale on UGallery’s website. Here is the link: Ugallery.

These two paintings were accepted into the 2012 Contemporary Masters Artistic Eden III show which opened this month. The show is held at the Pasadena Museum of History and celebrates life in the San Gabriel valley. I went down for the opening and was hugely impressed with the size and quality of the show. The show is running through July so if you are in the area get in to see it. Click here to see some of the art on display.

Done! This painting is now complete and ready for show. Note as of 10/14 this piece is available for sale on UGallery.com

My neighbors brought some great oranges home with them after a recent trip south and I found myself with a bagful of some real beauties. Of course my first thought was STILL LIFE!!!! Yes they are delicious and sweet but those glossy leaves and the rich color begged to be painted first. I took reference photos and have two larger watercolors planned. This one is a study for one of them. The cloth is a lovely old embroidered linen table scarf which has featured in other still lifes. This piece is 6″x6″ and is watercolor on paper. SOLD
