Pink Lady Apples - painting a day
"Pink Lady Apples" 5x7" SOLD
It was too wet today to paint outside, so I set up a couple of apples in the studio and did a still life. I forgot how gratifying it can be to work with a subject where the light isn't changing every minute.
If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, you'll know that I find framing work to be fraught with difficult choices. But after playing around in the shop (otherwise known as the garage) last weekend, I put together some frames for the little paintings that I'm really happy with. They're made from reclaimed oak flooring that has some beautiful character, and they seem to complement the paintings without overwhelming them, which is always a delicate balance.
If you're in the SF Bay Area, I hope you'll be stopping by the Serendipity show this weekend at Ft. Mason to see some of these paintings in person. I'll have a number of the small paintings from my painting a day project, as well as woodcuts and larger paintings. In other words, something for everyone.
