This blog is a new project for me. I will be creating 75 small oil paintings in a 7X5" or 5X7" format. These little snippets will be landscapes, still lifes, and the occasional furry or feathered friend. I am anxious to see how these small pieces effect my painting style and subject matter. New paintings will be introduced twice a week, and will be offered at $75 plus shipping. I hope you enjoy this creative journey along with me.

#7 -- "Pomegranate"
#7 - "Pomegranate" oil on linen panel, 5X7"
Earlier this week I was visiting my dear friend, MA. She is always encouraging me to paint (falls just short of brandishing a whip!). I had originally planned on painting in her garden, but the weather did not cooperate. Instead I picked up a couple of pomegranates when we were out buying ingredients for dinner. I set up the still life beside one of her windows, and was chasing the late afternoon light as I hurried to complete this little painting. After about an hour I had to stop because I could no longer see the colors I was mixing on my palette.
If you are interested in this painting contact the artist. firstname.lastname@example.org Offered at $75 plus $6.95 shipping and handling.
