Last week I played around with scraping off the top layer to allow the under painting to peek through. Today I worked on another big piece, but that won't be finished for a very long time.

I recently read about avocados being eaten with sweetened condensed milk. I haven't tried it yet, but think it sounds really good.

A couple of pears reminding me that summer is coming to a close.

Two Eggplants

I've had a couple of unsuccessful days of painting. I'm pretty happy with this piece, especially since was previously a giraffe, a dancer, and an eggplant and pepper.

I bought some red grapes at the market this week. They are so sweet and crunchy.

I found a 3" x 8" piece of hardwood that was used to crate enormous underground pipes on Cortland recently. I'm trying to find a way to cut and char it to make little vases for the wedding. In the meantime Trish cut some of it for little paintings.

This guy was hanging about during a feeding at the San Francisco Zoo. These might be just about the coolest animals on earth.

Another messier version of these two eggplants that I picked up at the market on Saturday.

Eggplants on Square Dish

It's been a while since I last posted. Technical problems and life have gotten in the way of painting and posting. It may just be like this for the next couple of months.

Happy Birthday Kathy!

It's my mom's 80th birthday and she doesn't get around so much any more so I decided to make her a picture. And since I like the tomatoes in the dish so much, I went and made her one.
