Reflected Artist – painting of a tea kettle

“Reflected Artist” /6×6 in / oil on linen panel / See Available Still Life Paintings

I wanted to try painting reflections of things you can’t see in the picture… Can you find the window, the 3rd apple, and me?

Portrait artist paints an Unpolished Apples

Unpolished Apples / 8×6 in / oil on canvas

In this painting I worked to convey the dusty quality of these pretty apples. They are fresh off a friend’s tree, and bright patches show through where hands have touched them. Oil on wood, 6 in x 8 in.

This painting has a similar technique / paint quality to a previous oil painting of flowers and apples.

My photo is not very good, I’m afraid. I’ll upload a new photo in a few days.

I really like the colors in this painting.

I’m going through updating links, and I looked at this painting again. It’s one of my favorites. I painted this in the kitchen while my dad was visiting, and I thought I would be distracted and paint poorly… But the light was perfect and I was in the zone. I’m going to paint some more apples!
