"Just Like the Morning Sun" - Oil - 6" x 8 " SOLD

This is the second orange pepper that I've painted. I thought this was such a lovely thing with the reflections and all which make it appear to be very shiny. As always, thanks for looking.

"Having Fun With Red & Green" - Oil - 6" x 8" - SOLD

That's a fact...I was having fun with red & green. I actually did this piece twice because I liked it so much. I did the first one in colored pencil which you can see HERE and this one in oil. I guess I was playing with the complementary, not just in the obvious colors but mixing the two in the shadows.

"Just Peachy" - Oil - 6" x 8" - SOLD

I couldn't resist this plate but I found it to be a little more difficlut to paint than I though. Nevertheless, I'm happy with how it turned out. And it looks like I'm still playing with compliments. I actually didn't realize that until I posted "Having Fun With Red & Green". I was going to hang on to all three pieces but decided to go ahead and list them on Ebay. Since I am now painting 9" x 12"s I may not be lisiting any more small paintings for a while.

"Charmed" ~ 9 x 12" - SOLD

At last. It's finally finished. I really enjoyed painting this piece. I think the title expresses how I felt the whole time I worked on it.
