"The Annual Celebration"

"The Annual Celebration"

Oil on board
14" x 11"

This is my latest painting. Please forgive the reflections...I'll get a REAL photograph of it soon.

Almost there

I'm almost satisfied with it.

Now trying to decide whether to add a piece of orange peel at the base of the bowl. I'm waiting until the painting is dry enough to paint it in and still be able to wipe it off again if I don't like it!

Another day...

Here is today's progress. I've worked on rouging in some of the bowl (by no means there yet) and most of the background and tightened up the oranges a little. Fortunately, I had that pretty much in order BEFORE the cat tried to sleep in the set-up and pushed the bowl and the oranges to the floor.

Another day...

"Monument to Oranges" or "Orange Appeal"?

What's on my easel...

Here is the start on my newest painting...

This is only the top half of it. The bottom is barely sketched in. I'm happy so far.

I need to think of a name for this one. This monument of oranges is in a green pedestal bowl. Maybe that's what I should call it... "Monument of Oranges"

It's a 16 x 20 vertical and the oranges are fairly large.
