Globe Grapes and Drip Pottery

5" x 7" Oil on Linen Panel

I have a small collection of drip pottery that I have accumulated over the years. This pot is a small space ship looking vessel with wonderful cool and warm colors. It holds a small flower frog that I frequently use to put arrangements like pansies or nasturtium that don't have strong stems. Since the grapes and the pot had pretty much the same colors I thought the arrangement would make a harmonious composition. Available on Ebay.

Red Tamarillo

5" x 7" Oil on Linen

These days when I go to the grocery store my produce shopping involves finding new props for still life paintings. I've never come across red tamarillos before but I thought their red color and shape would make a unique addition to one of my paintings. I did a bit of research on the fruit and they are cousins to eggplant and grown in California and New Zealand. If you would like to purchase this painting it is available on Ebay.
