still life with 3 pears.

another large acrylic painting, this is in a gallery in Adelaide, it's what I would call a decorator piece,
bright, lively, impressionistic.

Jonique, turning.

A new life drawing done at Ballarat recently, The face reminds me of the famous painting by
Vermeer  for the movie 'the Girl with the Pearl Earring',

Apple and Pear.

I did this painting while in Adelaide a few weeks ago, it's in acrylic, ( most unusual for me.!)
it was for my daughter Emily, its big, and fun, it has helped me go in a new direction, away from the dark colours, I painted it under the car port in the open, with grandkids whizzing past on skateboards, saying Cool ,man, thats awesome etc!! I did another 3 or 4 at the same time. let me know what you think.?

Two pears.

Hi bloggers!  I must add some new pictures to my blog, I have been painting and drawing a  lot recently, this one is 1 meter by 1 meter,  oil on canvas and has been sold twice, !! this one goes to Adelaide to a lovely home by the North Adelaide golf course, and I have done a twin version for a couple up here in Daylesford. the background is actually whiter than it looks on this photo.
