At It Again

6"x6" | oil on archival panel

​The persimmons are at it again! These persimmons are from a private farm in Mosier Oregon. They have a slightly different look, and one of them came with leaves! bonus.
I am having a blast experimenting with new tools. New brushes from Rosemary Brushes, Ivory Flats with Rounded Edges. And a Kemper tool, that scrapes paint away beautifully.

My Mother's Copper Pot

6"x6" | oil on archival panel
This copper pot has sentimental value, it belonged to my mother. I have never painted copper before, so, like many of my small 6"x6" paintings, it was an experiment. I liked doing it! One of the things I liked about it, was composing the still life, I have always liked putting turquoise and orange objects together, one of my favorite color combinations.
This painting is part of the weekly painting challenge on Daily Paintworks, the challenge this week is copper.

My Mother's Silver

5"w x 7" h | oil on archival panel

br> I was very curious to try painting silverware, something that is almost colorless... almost a tonal study, this is one of my experiments, to see how it works out. I want to paint more... I always liked the John Singer Sargent paintings of a table setting with silver...

This was my mother's silverware... young women were "picking their silver patterns" in the 50s, these were her choice... a time of hopes and dreams maybe...
