Onions & Garlic

Onions & Garlic
6" x 6", Oil, $125
I have started to paint on 1/8" ampersand gessobord.  It has a smooth surface and the paint goes on so nicely.  There's no canvas weave texture.  I mount them in frames I got from This company is exceptional- great customer service! 
The great thing about painting still life is... if you are out of ideas just go to your kitchen and grab what's available!    My "go to" are apples and pears but I thought I would give the onion family a try.

Spring is Coming!
Oil, 6" x 6"
Found this brown/amber vase in an antique store.  so cute!   "Wyeth 271"  is on bottom.  It is a medicine/pharmaceutical bottle.  John Wyeth and brother had a pharmacy in Philadelphia in the late 19th century. Not sure of it's original purpose but it must have had a cork stopper.  When the light shines through it is orange glass.

Pink Carnations
Oil, 6" x 6"
Carnations are great to have in flower arrangements because they last for more than a week. These were hanging on so I decided to paint them.  This is framed in a big black molding.
