Still Life with Pomegranates

If I had to pick one fruit to paint for the rest of my life, I think it would be pomegranates. So fun!

I hope your week is off to a great beginning!

An Italian Pairing

For a still life painter, fall has to be the best time of year. As I wandered into the produce section, it was all I could do to keep from shouting out loud. Yippee, yippee! Inspiration is easily found among the bountiful array of fruits and veggies. My eye was drawn to the purple of these plums, and I had so much fun painting them.

Recently, I found a great video clip by Brenda Semanick. She discusses drawing ellipses, and a short demo on painting soft grays. If you're interested, you can view it here.

I hope you're having a great week! Happy painting!

My Sunday afternoon was spent painting pomegranates and watching  listening to the Dallas Cowboys play. And win! I'm a happy girl.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
