Coffee Time, oil on canvas, 20 x 24

The last few weeks I have been working on several still life paintings. This piece was a lot of fun to work on; I enjoyed working with the glass in shadow and trying to push the white daisies into the background. I always tend to enjoy working with sunflowers and wild asters, a familiar combination of flowers from my growing up in New Mexico.

"Bits from the Kitchen" oil on canvas, 16 x 20

I thought I would give it one more go with the onions and the garlic, so this most recent still life is the result. I am pretty happy with the ending and the onions and garlic went nicely into the mashed potatoes for this evening's supper.

"Autumn Still Life" oil on canvas 12 x 16

During the hectic holiday season it was hard to grab a few moments to complete any larger work. I decided to work on a group of smaller still life paintings with similar objects only trying to come up with variations in composition. I enjoy painting copper and enjoyed adding in some dried corn as well as onions and garlic for textural variety. We finally have some snow so hopefully this week I will be able to head out and work a bit outside. Happy New Year.
