Summer Fruit (and a little history) -sold
click here to bid We're having a great time in San Diego, but not much painting going on! Here's a still life I did before we left. I'm especially happy with the grapes here. They're loosely suggested, and the green is natural, not overly saturated. Today we visited the San Diego History Museum which included an exhibit of artworks from local artists of the past. These two paintboxes were from 1916. I was surprised to see little Grumbacher tubes and a corked glass tube for oil in the smaller one. The larger box was completely lined with tin, having two little square holes for medium in the front right corner. Fun to see.
