Clementines 5


Clementines 5, 6x6 oil on canvas. More clementines. I've toyed and experimented with light and shadow in the last few paintings. I guess when you paint the same thing over and over, you begin to get a feel for it.

Clementines 4

I did this one over a gessoed over painting. I really liked the surface and clarity of colors. So much so that I am now re- gessoing my other canvases.

Clementines 3

More Clementines, or Smarties, whichever you prefer to call them. My display at the gallery will definitely have a theme. Not that that was my intention. I just get working on something and before you know it, I have a bit of a collection, or series, I suppose. Anyway, who can blame me? They're cute little colorful fellows that make great subjects. Notice the pink in these?

Clementines 2

4x6 oil on canvas. What can I say? I like oranges.

Clemtines 1

4x6 oil on canvas. Back in the saddle, or should I say office, and posting again. I've been plugging away in the studio but since it's no longer in my house, it's less convenient to post since my office is in my house. I've noticed my paintings dont dry nearly as fast in my new studio probably because I turn the heat way down when I leave so they rather pile up before I bring them up to scan and post.
