Sunny Fruit Bowl II



Oil on 3/4 inch canvas (10 x 10 inches)

This is a re-working of a painting I had done a while back - I always wondered if the background was a bit too dark for the overall composition. So I worked on the lights on the fruit as well as adding in some lighter green/blue into the background.  I feel like the changes allow the painting to live up to it's title - "Sunny" Fruit Bowl.

Punch Buggy Yellow


Oil on panel (9 x 12 inches)

There’s something about a beetle car that makes me want to paint it.  This one was basking in the sunshine at an antique car show and it caught my eye right away.  I think it’s all the curvy lines that makes it an interesting subject for me plus the nostalgia that they seem to radiate.
