Tubes, Bottles & Brushes


Tubes, Bottles & Brushes  oil, 10x10 inches
Purchase info here. 

This picture is a bit blurry.  The painting is much crisper. Sometimes when I am not sure what to paint, I paint the things I paint with.  It makes for a colorful set up, different shapes, sizes and textures.  Paint tubes are among my favorite subjects.  Artists of all kinds fall in love with their tools, and I'm no different.  Do you have tools that you treasure?

Pear Sings Bass


Pear Sings Bass  oil 8x10
Purchase info here.

Years ago I had the pleasure of singing for several years in an acapella choir.  That's a choir of voices only-no instuments to accompany the voices.  In order to stay on pitch, the director taught us to listen to the men singing bass. I sang alto but then got switched to soprano.  In other words, I was a peach, then became a cherry.  I wish you could see this painting in person.
