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

This kettle has been years in the obscurity of a basement box, possibly serving as a home for a family of mice at some point. Now it has a new life as a still life prop and this is its first job. This is an original acrylic painting on smooth museum quality gessobord and measures 6″x6″. SOLDcopperkettle

Oh I love this little blue pitcher. Its lovely blue glaze is rich and deep and inside it’s kind of a  pearly white. And it looks great with lemons. So here we have them creating a nice little still life in one of my favorite color combinations. This painting is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas and measures 6×8″. SOLDbluepitcher

I got these great cherries the last time I was in Trader Joe’s and love the range of reds in this batch. The cloth is a lovely old table linen some distant relation embroidered patiently, no doubt whiling away many a quiet hour. This piece is acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas and measures 6″x8″.  SOLDcherries618
