"Apple Bowl " Revisited

This was one of my first blog pictures it was a 2 Hr demo . I went back and basically finished the painting. Now I wish the first was never published you can look back and see the original post in June. I feel much better about the results now.

" Tea 4 Three"

It was a pleasant surprise to see the outline of the hearts with the handles shadows. The Gold on the rim was by far the hardest to capture. Im still not happy with the photes Im thinking , I may need a better camera. Trust me these paintings dont have a hazey glare to them. Enjoy   It really is a shame how these photes don't do this one justice. Sorry;0).

My wife makes the best Cole slaw ever. Always from scratch and these are the items I need to get from the store. Great with BBQ however the summer is coming to a end. This will be the last time for a while. So I did this small 8x10 canvas in honor of it. This is the first time to paint cabbage, love it . Enjoy ;0).

" Our Life one stroke at a time "

Spent the day at RIVERBEND ART GALLERY Yesterday. Met Marta Stafford Director , What a wonderful visit, she is such a advocate lover of Art. It was so neat to hear her talk about the art and artist.
Then got to meet Artist Rusty Jones in person. What a refreshing artist  his work is outstanding. Answered all my questions and spent allot of time while visiting. Every painting has a story and personality. If you have never been take the time to visit this Gallery and the artists. Good stuff ;0).

"Wide Open"

I did this painting last week .This was when the skies where clear of smoke. We have been in the news with over 1000 homes on fire because of the heat and drought. Its sad to hear that one of the homes was one of our own Carol Marine - A Daily Painter. :o(
The Sky:
I am still fasinated by how clear the colors are and how the clouds hang with such beauty. The rich light blue to the darker blue.

"Peek a Boo Pond " SOLD

One of the things in Texas hard to find is water anywhere. Found this small lake with the fading sun in the background. Loved the effect of the shadows and how it captured my eyes. I did sign it in the right side just above the shadow of the tree.DC. Can you see it.
