Circles & A Square -a still life painting in oil -SOLD

oil 8x10 inches magnify/purchase info We are eight days from moving. I'm only about half way packed, but my new studio is coming along nicely. It's going to be a big one! Plenty of space for workshops and bigger paintings. I'm so excited! I'll share some pictures as soon as I can. Meanwhile, here's the first demo I did last Saturday in Rancho Cucamonga. These are my mini pomegranates I love to use for their size and color. In my opinion this painting works well because of color harmony and the inclusion of round shapes of different sizes, a square shape and line. I like using diagonals to prevent a static, (really still) still life. Below you can see my start, toned with burnt umber.


  1. Super fresh and beautiful! Love the light on the blue container.
    Moving? To a new town? Excited for you and to see your new studio!
