Lemon Twirl

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 8"x8" SOLD

It's been a while since I sat down to do a one-sitting painting. I've been working on larger paintings for a gallery and for commissions. Numerous things that I usually can't post right away even though I'm excited to show them off. It felt good to get back to the small format. My favorite part of this painting is the part on the lemon where you can really tell the thickness of the rind.

Fontijne Grotnes

Oil on Canvas. Approx 24"x36" SOLD

This is the commission that took two weeks to complete. Yikes. It was all worth it, though. It was a great challenge for many reasons. The size, the figures. I was just not in my element so the process was a bit slower. Now I'm working on a larger painting of a group of pears that I feel a lot more comfortable with. I was hoping to finish that one this week but it will definitely go into next week.

It's been too long since my last post and it's not because I haven't been painting. I just finished up a huge corporate commission that two all of those two weeks to complete. I'll post that one late next week after I deliver it. This painting was a blast to paint. I was truly in my element with the orange peel and the leaves. I haven't had much time lately for small daily paintings because I have a laundry list of larger works to do mostly for gallery group shows and some commissions. Stay tuned for those.
