Three objects on a shelf

I painted this little still life recently. I like the subtle blue colour that's emerging out the shadows. I'm going to take some photos of my studio and show how I set up my still life arrangement, on a precarious pyramid of chairs and tables to get them at the correct eye level.

Still life with egg plant

I completed this little painting over the weekend. It's 310 mm x 150 mm. What interested me most was the beautiful reflective surface of the eggplant.

SALE (SOLD.)- Still life with lemon and pumpkin

It was nice to sit down and paint a still life (without a nest!) I'm hoping to do a few more over this coming weekend. The first person to send me an email to purchase this little painting - it's on offer for only $150.00 AUS + postage. How's that for a bargain!?
