So, what is Apple Delight? Well, that would be one green apple and one Double Delight rose. We have one Double Delight rose bush and one tree in our backyard and this spring they have both put on quite a show. They have been turning out blooms as big as softballs. Gotta love that.

When I finished yesterday's painting, Marine Study 010, I had plenty of paint left over. That is the one thing I could say that is good about the painting butter I used. It does stretch the paint quite a ways. So I decided to use what was left to do a palette knife painting and wanted to layer the paint on quite thickly.

As I alluded to yesterday, the paint was drying way too fast for my tastes, so I had to work quickly to get this one finished. All in all I think it came out pretty nicely.

I did a little experiment this evening and used a painting butter from Lukas in my oil paints. I would have to say that I probably won't be buying that stuff again. It became thick and hard to work with long before I got this painting finished and I worked on it for about three hours. I kept having to add medium to the paint to get it to flow. Maybe I just don't understand the reason for its use or how to use it for that matter.

I like the painting, but it is a study for a larger work, that I shall be starting in the next day or so.

Had some time and decided to do an old favorite. Cherries! This is another one of my imagination paintings. No setup, no photo reference, nothing. Just me and the brushes. Oh, and the movie Gravity.

So many flowers ...


... so little time to paint them. The backyard is in full bloom right now with flowers everywhere. Even the lemon tree is covered with little white flowers. And honey bees. And a wasp here and there. We need to enjoy it while it lasts because once the temps get above 100 the flowers will get smaller and smaller and less profuse.

While my sweetie is away in San Fran for a girls weekend I think I can safely go out and steal a couple of roses and do a quick painting. She'll never know. :)

Wanted to do something quick and easy, so I went for an old favorite. Quick and easy? Yeah, right. Worked on this one for about three hours last night and then saw some things I wanted to change this morning, so I worked on it again for about an hour before calling it finished.

Just a quickie landscape. I love that brown sky, just before the storm. And the birds looking for shelter.

Trying to branch out from the ordinary (donuts) to the extraordinary. I have found though, that finding good cupcakes can be an exercise in futility. Your average donut house does NOT carry cupcakes. Maybe cupcakes are a little too complex for the average donut baker. I don't know, but I shall continue my search.

Virtual Art Space

I got an email from Richard Robinson yesterday about creating a virtual gallery at 3Dvas.com, Virtual Art Space. It's pretty nice, though I do see some issues with the site that need to be fixed over time. You can create on small gallery for free, so I created my Kitchen Paintings gallery. Have a look.

Here is the sequel to the cake painting from yesterday. One bite missing. I wonder who did that?
