#375 Slice of Morning #1



I've painted grapefruits a handful of times and have always loved the ruby reds that pop out when you  take a slice out of them, plus they are super yummy for breakfasts!

#374 "Chomp Chomp!"


Sometimes a nice little still life subject is a lunch snack away:)

#373 Sour Slice #1


I really like the green on black combination of the Granny Smith paintings so I decided to try some lime pieces. These little guys get use a ton in our house, from fruit salads to tea I love em'.

#370 Fuji Slice #1


I've got a few more Granny Smiths in me but I decide to "mix it up" a bit with this little lady. I've painted this variety a bunch of times because the speckled reds and oranges always seem to pop next to the black background.

#369 Granny Smith Slice #3


Another sliced up apple piece. This time one that features a bit of a balancing act. Trying to get this little guy to hold still was quite a challenge but rewarding in the end.

#367 Granny Smith Slice #1


I'm starting to get some work ready for my upcoming show in Old Town Chicago, and since I just finished 50 4x4 pieces for a recent local project I thought "What the hell" I'll do a few more. The project had a very tight deadline so I had to paint quick and small.  So in order to get that many paintings out in a little under 6 weeks I would paint a single piece of fruit or vegetable, then cut a slice out of it, tip it, chop it, whatever I could do to alter it and paint it again over and over again. This little granny smith will probably have a few reincarnations in the next couple of days.

#366 Luminous



Again another piece that is backdropped by the Atlantic. When the sun is high up in the air the light bounce off the water and creates some wonderful effects. I've always loved painting the figure in this setting because so much of it is doused in this luminous light that makes the highlights pop and the shadows sing.

#365 Wet T-Shirt



Another from my recent trip to the Bahamas. I never really liked being in the water with a shirt on but they do make for nice paintings. I've always loved painting figures in the water. The reflections and the figure backlit with the wonderful blues, violets, and greens is always a nice departure from figures painted in a studio setting.

#364 Blue Shirt on The Beach


The family just got back from a Disney cruise, and along with some autographs from a handful of princesses and tiny tan, I accumulated a bit of references from one of my favorite subjects to paint . . .  the beach.
