Turquoise Tea Pot and Apples in the Shadow

6"x6" :: Oil on archival panel
The Turquoise Fiestaware Tea Pot looks great with the apples. I was instructing my weekly oil painting class at Columbia Center for the Arts this morning, and this was my demo painting for the class.
Melanie Thompson, a daily painter on Daily Paintworks Website, drove all the way from Richland WA to come to my 3 hr class, at the art center this morning. I love meeting other Daily Painters in person! Thanks Melanie for coming to my class in Hood River, OR!

AND I have had so much fun painting this teapot, my super cool cousin is sending me another cool Fiestaware teapot to paint (it's a very tall blue one), among other colorful random fiesta pieces.

Red Apple and Asian Bowl

6"x6" :: oil on archival panel :: Red Apple and Asian Bowl
I am always working on different concepts with each small painting. Today, I was working on everything. Composition of shapes, light vs dark, intense chroma vs neutrals, variety of brushstrokes…I love this bowl, it's one of my still life inspirations from Uwagimaya in Portland. If you haven't been there, it's worth going.
