Just Grapes

6x6" oil on linen

This painting speaks for itself. It is a simple painting of purple grapes--that I tried not to eat while painting. It is painted on a 3/4 inch stretched linen surface.

Apple in Brass Bird Dish

6x8" oil on canvas panel

I can't remember where I found this odd little brass soap dish but it came alive after I polished it. This painting is on a very nice archival cotton panel by Raymar. Though I'm still a novice when it comes to painting, I have decided that life is too short to paint on inferior quality surfaces. (Use the good china too!)

Apple on Blue Striped Towel

6x6" on Gessobord panel
This simple still life was painted using a vintage kitchen towel. I can't seem to find this kind of towel any more. They are all cotton and incredibly soft. And best of all, they don't turn into a mess of wrinkles when they are washed and dried. This little painting is on a 1/8 inch archival Gessobord panel. It can be framed any way you want though floater frames will show the entire small painting.
