Fall Celebration (Apples in a Basket)

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.

Bread, Lemons and Bottle of Syrup

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.
