Blue Skies

Blue Skies, 18 x 24, oil on canvas

Stripes and Reflections! My two favorite subjects to paint.

I took many reference photos for this painting. I set up this still life on the deck of my house. The reflections show the Blue New Mexico Sky, my pink stucco house and black and white striped fabric. The vehicle for the reflections is an antique silver creamer that belonged to my mother.

Work in Progress - Super Powers

Super Powers, work in progress,detail, 20 x 16, oil on cradled board

It has been ages since I posted a new contemporary still life painting! But it's not because I haven't been in the studio working.

One of the pieces I have been working on is this trompe l'oeil. This is just the center detail of the painting. It's another in my Super Heros series. I'll tell you the story behind it when I post the finished painting. In the mean time, take a look and tell me what you think.
