Three Porcelain Pears

This is the latest painting I've done with the still life group that meets on Tuesday evenings at Michelle Walker's studio. I got a late start on this one due to the fact that I attended my grandson's baseball game before. Ryan is 8 years old and is a great baseball player - at least from Grandma's viewpoint - and one thing is certain...he is the cutest, best-looking 8 year old on the diamond!!!

Michelle set up this still life with white porcelain pears and a gold plein-air frame. Unfortunately my granddaughter says she likes my purple pears, so I guess I went a little overboard with the purple for the shadows.

This painting is done in oil and is painted on an 8"x10" canvas panel which was underpainted in black gesso.

Michelle and I painted at Patty's house this afternoon en plein air - this is a painting of the farm next door to Patty. It was a perfect day to paint outside! Patty and Rose were wimps - they stayed in the house! ;-)

Rainy Afternoon at Provico

Tonight I finished this plein air painting that I started last Friday while plein air painting with Michelle Walker and Chris Leeper at Provico in Botkins, Ohio.  It was a misty, cold, rainy day and I tried to capture that feeling in this painting.  The painting is 9" x 12" and is painted on a canvas panel.  It was such a privilige painting with Chris Leeper.

Happy White Rabbit

This is todays daily creation - a small oil painting 6" x 6" painted on a canvas panel. Michelle brought the ceramic rabbit and the material to our painting group today and I provided the old enamel pitcher.  What fun!
