Mounds Bar - Candy Bar Series - 6 x 6"

I haven't posted in a long time and I'm going through the motions now by posting this small gem, candy bar painting.  When I painted this, it took time to arrange the design.  The questions were, "how do I present it, how do I tear the wrapper and still retain the name in a readable way.  What color background looks good with chocolate brown?"  Let me know what you think. :)

Gloucester Dories 5x7"

Gloucester Dories are special in this area and hand-made.

On a hot day I painted these dories on site (en plain air) on a wharf in Gloucester Harbor (Massachusetts).  Later on I painted a larger studio work 8x10" with a little more detail.  This small work has nice shapes and colors and an interesting design.  

Gloucester Dories, 5x7", oil on gessoed masonite panel

Grandma Mason Cup

This was my grandmother's china set which she received as a wedding present back around 1910.  I've been wanting to paint a cup for a while now.  My whole art career and love of art started with my grandfather who had me draw cups.

Two Pond Lilies

Two Pond Lilies, 5x7" oil on Gessobord
See sidebar for my website and my other blogs.

I really liked the way that some of the lily pads were 'sinking' into the water, 
and I liked the vibrancy of the colors of the lily pads and the water.  
Water always takes on the sky and cloud colors and that is the neat thing about painting water.
