Eggplants in Harmony - 30 x 22"

I love painting food - I don't know why really... but other people within my circle of friends and artists groups have noticed how some of my "food" paintings tend to lean a bit towards the, shall we say, "erotic". I think this is one such painting.

Eggplant is one of those vegetables that I love to paint - I love their smooth surface, and their purple-almost-black color. For this painting, I wanted to go big - really big - to further emphasize their curvy shape and "sensual" appearance.

This painting can be purchased through my Etsy shop.

Lakeshore - 33 x 20" diptych

Shortly after relocating from the busy life to our more serene lakefront home, I was inspired by my new view from the window. I had wanted to do a "diptych" (2 matching paintings) before, and I thought what better time to give it a try.

The painting depicts the lakeshore: the water on the bottom, sunset at the top, joined together by a white, wavy horizon line. I also added some actual river rocks to the piece, to add to the "organic", nature theme. The stones are held on the canvas by yellow waxed linen thread. It's an abstract piece that uses complimentary colors (orange and blue), and would go great in any home.
