A New Still Life Painting

"Juice of Mat", 8" x 10", Oil on Board
It's been about three years since I've posted on my blog.  I've started working again in oils and acrylics and have decided to produce a body of work that concentrates on vintage, kitchen items.  Let me know what you think.

A Daily Painting

"Bosc Pear", 5"x7", Oil on Board
I don't paint a lot of daily painting so I decided to get a pear a prop it up and do a quick painting of it. I haven't decided what direction to go in next. I do have some old bottles that I've been considering but right now I'm still undecided.

Vintage Teapot

"Vintage Teapot", 8"x8", Oil on Board
I just finished painting this teapot this morning. This is a subject that I've painted before with fabric behind and under the teapot but I wanted to revisit this subject with just a simple background.

Another Candy Painting

M & M's III, 6"x6", Oil on Board
I finished this M & M painting over the weekend. Although it's not much different from my other M & M paintings I just love painting these...kind of fun with the bright colors.

Just Finished My Martini

"Martini", 5"x7", Oil on Board
I just finished painting this earlier today and had to battle the wind to get a picture of it. I'm not happy with how the painting turned out but I post my failures on here as well. I've also been busy working on some landscapes, but I haven't decided if I'll post those on here on not. At the Art2010 at the Harlow Gallery, I got an honorable mention for one of my pieces. That show ends on the 30th of this month in Hallowell, Maine.

Finished my Teapot

"Old Teapot", 6"x6", Oil on Board
I finished my teapot yesterday and just took it outside to get a quick photo of it. This was painted with a limited palette; however, I don't use pre-mixed greys. I like having the control over mixing my own. In other news for the week, I had two paintings accepted into a juried show at Art2010 at the Harlow Gallery here in Maine. May 7th will be a reception when they will announce prize winners...I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Sneak Peek Old Teapot in Progress

This is an old teapot that I'm currently working on. Some areas have given me grief but I'm determined to finish the piece. The finished painting will measure 6"x6". On a side note, I entered some work in another juried show over the weekend and will find out by the end of the week if my work was accepted. I never really worry about winning awards at these events...I just want my work accepted and then if I happen to win something it's a bonus.
