What's on the easel...

Here are some new paintings. The first is a still life portrait of my husbands dad and grandfather. I chose items that belonged to each of these men or reminded me of them. It was challenging but fun to paint. The pears are just what they seem, something lovely to eat and paint. The final images are from a commission I'm working on. It's a still life with the clients daughters favorite toys. Very fun!

Just found your blog and thoroughly enjoyed reading through some of your posts. I am a part-time painter presently (fitting it around the day job) and am going through a bit of a productive low with my own work.

I have been inspired by elements of still life painting so have been particularly interested in your work. It is usually a very overlooked and underappreciated subject.

I have put a link to your blog on my own blog and referenced it as a source of inspiration to get me painting again, I hope that you don't mind. I will happily remove the link if you would prefer.

Keep up the good work.
