Clementine Oranges Still Life Painting Clementine Oranges Still Life Painting - For Sale
When I lived in Spain during junior year of college, my host family had a cousin with an orchard that grew clementines- "mandarinas." He brought baskets and baskets of them to the house. We ate them for months.

Tomatoes and Bread

Tomato and Bread Still Life Painting Tomato and Bread Still Life Painting- For Sale
My favorite kind of still life is the pantry scene, of humble food objects in a peaceful setting. I think when those paintings are successful, they turn into a type of poem about being in that moment, kind of a Zen thing. Yet they preserve that moment, and make it timeless. When people talk about being right brained, and when they talk about meditation, that's what I think they mean, finding that calm, golden feeling. The bread here is home made by the way- a home made ciabatta.

Thanksgiving Pie Apple Slaughter

These two apples are now part of a giant pie baking in the oven. Total damage: 8 apples. What am I thankful for? Many things, and right at this moment I am especially thankful for my food processor and the kitchen rage blackouts it prevented. Happy Thanksgiving!

Granny Smith Apples

Two Granny Smiths. I like the delicate color shifts in the greens of these apples, and I wanted to try out a different color palette. AND I'd bought twelve apples just in case I didn't have enough for a pie. ;) So this painting was born.

Painting of still life with baguette. The delicious end of the loaf of french bread... that turned hard as a rock and made its way into art. I painted this back when my still life shelf was still red (it's gray now).
