Ruby Red II - 6 x 6 inches - Oil on canvas - SOLD

I enjoyed the previous grapefruit painting so much that I decided to tackle the same subject from a slightly different angle. This time, instead of blue, I toned my canvas with a wash of red. The end result is quite different with a much softer and “warmer” glow. The spoon was a challenge from that angle and I’m pretty pleased with the end result.

Ruby Red I - 6 x 6 inches - Oil on canvas - SOLD

This is actually my 2nd attempt painting this set up. In my first try, I made the spoon too small. When I stood back, it seemed funky and out of proportion. That was actually a good reminder to periodically step back when I’m painting. It is amazing how I can be merrily painting along and things seem to be going well. Then , I'll cross the room to look from a distance and something will immediately jump out at me that is definitely out of kilter!

Cupcake on Stripes - 6 x 6 inches - Oil on canvas - SOLD

I’ve painted cupcakes before and will probably paint them again. They are very cute and lovable (and usually taste damn good too!). In honor of Valentine’s Day, I picked a pink frosted beauty with red and white sprinkles. I wanted this painting to be fun, funky and festive so I used bright colors and just let the paints fly.
This painting is available for $50 and will hang at Art on Main. It can also be purchased directly by contacting me. 6.25% sales tax applies to MA residents. Shipping is $8.
