This painting is heavily textured and very “painterly” as some say. A friend of mine has several fruit trees in her front yard and allowed us to pick the apples while she was on vacation. I made a few yellow for the contrast. The basket is in my collection of stuff that I use for still life arrangements. It may be over 50 years old! For more information, click here.
This is a 6 x 8 painting of Figi Apples. Brush strokes are easily seen on the apples and leaves. For further information, click here.
Lemons are often a favorite fruit for still life painters. I like to add them because their bright yellow is so effective when displayed against dull jars. One of these jars is an old Mason Jar. The other was purchased and came with a cute wrapper. This painting is 10 x 8.
This loaf of organic bread came in a shiny wrapper which was a bit of a challenge to paint. I decided to display it with a syrup bottle and lemons. (Yeah, I know–who would eat syrup and lemons with bread!!) But I think it makes a rather interesting still life, especially displayed on an antique red striped table cloth.
