I have a conference this weekend so it's likely I won't be back until next week.
Enjoy the weekend and don't forget to eat fruit.

Cantaloupe - Redo

These have been hanging around my studio and I nearly painted over them but decided to redo the background instead. I haven't eaten any cantaloupe yet, but I bet they're starting to get pretty good.

June Plums

I went to the Alemany Farmers Market on Saturday and bought pluots, plums, nectarines, and peaches. Yum!

Waiting for Trish

at UPS I started wandering around with her camera, hoping to find something fun to take pictures of. I looked up, I looked around, and finally, I looked down!

Warm Weather Whimsy

It's been very hot in the City. I think this is a product of not having enough energy to concentrate. Trish calls them "happy accidents."

24" x 36" Peaches

I am proclaiming today the first day of peach season! Really, peaches have been good up until now, but today I had the first one that made me want to dance.

Big Tomatoes Final

I finished the first of the big paintings today. I need to get a move on because the exhibit goes up in July!

Cross a plum and an apricot and you get a pluot or an aprium. Here are a few of Ellen's Apriums that I managed paint before they disappear. They are amazing!!!

In Progress

Angelo, look what you've done! This is the first in the BIG paintings series and it's a work in progress. I thought I'd take a photo of it in my studio to create a sense of proportion.

I returned to the kumquats today. I'm surprised they are still around.

Angelo's Tomatoes

I've worked on the background of this more but left my camera in my friend's car so didn't get the latest shot. It's very similar, just less swirly bits in the background.

Ten Minute Drawing

In my drawing class at the Atelier we progress from two minute gesture drawings to ten minute sketches to warm up in the morning. I liked the way this drawing turned out.
