"Blueberry Blues" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas - SOLD

Just before heading to Art on Main for my weekly shift at the gallery, I rummaged through my refrigerator for something to paint. The cupboard was pretty bare but I managed to find these blueberries. I set them up on a small white plate next to the window. Two of the blueberries still have a small stem so I flipped them over, stem-side up, to add a bit of interest. I guess it isn't quite blueberry season yet as these little guys didn't taste like much of anything.

It's always sad that sometimes these little treats really don't live up to the taste expectations we build up for them... Nice painting, though... Too bad you couldn't reward yourself afterward by popping them into your mouth!!

there is a sweetness to these blueberries I find very appealing
