Limes

My son loves to cook. He made burritos one day and bought about four limes. I’ve never used limes but he knew what to do with them. So these are leftover limes and I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.

Ready for stew.

It was painted on a linen canvas panel. I have say I’m now hooked on linen. It receives the oils so nicely and smoothly. Got this panel from Blick’s; they had leftovers when it was Utrecht. Unfortunately I don’t think they are carrying anymore.

My son’s clay figure. He’s an adult now but he create this piece when he was just a child. A memory of time that seems so long ago.

Just an apple that I found around the house. Unfortunately I can’t eat apples. I’m allergic to them. But they are fun to paint.

More tiny paintings. Day 7, 8, & 9 are of the same garlic. The first day I painted the garlic, I just did not feel it was right. Another attempt on Day 8, seems to come out much worse. Day 9 was much better. I concentrated on getting the strokes down right the first time.

Friday night I had an one night opening in Woodland and along with my regular paintings I put out the ACEOs that I completed. Two sold. At $20 each, these tiny paintings are easy sales. People including myself are a bit hesitate to pay over $100 on a painting or anything else. So the ACEOs will become a staple for steady income.
