#382 "Jelly Filled"


A year or so back I painted a small group of pieces that centered around donuts (or doughnuts I never can remember how to spell it). For an upcoming show I'm going to do another series of smaller pieces and a couple of not so smaller ones to go along with them. There is so much going on with these guys as far as textures, colors, and reflections go. And on top of that it, an extra donut here or there that don't make their way onto the still life table make the early morning just a bit sweeter.

#381 Yellow and Red #1


I've painted this espresso cup a bunch of times for the pop of color it has in a composition. The darks of the cherries really reinforced this as well as giving some really wonderful reflections of my studios huge bay windows.

#380 "Peel"



I can't remember how many of these apples with peels out of them I've painted, but I do know it's approaching a ton! I keep coming back to the because of the wonderful stark contrasts of the apple skin and inside fruit in the light.


#379 Christmas Cookies


A few cookies that didn't make it into Santa's tummy this year.
