# 147: Captive Pear

6" x 6" oil on canvas

Finally, I get another painting done. It has been hard to find the time and Sunday was a "wipe-out"
I decided to go with a split complementary this time.
I am a little attached to the blue glass box.

146: Jesty Peppers

6" x 6" oil on canvas
I decided to give the peppers another go before they turned. One of the great advantage to painting is that you don't always have to eat your veggies in order to appreciate them.

# 145 : Pepper Rows

6" x 6" oil on canvas
Values on a high key painting are a bit tricky. I had a lot of fun with the colors and the composition, though the composition has it's issues. I my try something similar tomorrow..

#144: Blondi

8" x 11" oil on canvas

A three hour painting session in which time I did not have time to complete the hand. It was an interesting session in that I had not painted a blond before and the skin tones were quite different than what i was used to.

I think that it is better cropped more.

142: Cool Shades

6" x 6" oil on canvas
I spent a lot of time during the last month working with subdued palettes. now my focus is on color and white. I really enjoyed painting the blues of my new glass vase. The glasses were a bit tough form me...When I deal with object that are more designed, I tend to get lost in the "thingyness" of the object and forget to look at as shapes of value and hue. i must remember to squint and squint and than squint some more.

# 141: Cutie Juice

 5" x 5" oil on canvas
I had reservations about posting this painting. I am still annoyed with the process of painting it and feel very dissatisfied with the results. However, because I have not posted for such a long time I decided to put it up there.
