There will be two of my recent paintings on display at the Cincinnati Art Club next month.

Lemons and Ball Jar
was painted last fall and is based on a photograph that I took in bright sunlight on a black fabric. As you can see, the viewpoint is unusual for a still-life painting, this is often true of my work. I get inspired by the sunlight that comes streaming in my kitchen window when I am washing fruits and vegetables.

Granny Smith and Arkansas Black Apples was painted earlier this winter. This was painted from life with palette knife. Most of my paintings are done alla prima with palette knife. The colors are mixed before being applied to the canvas, and clean up is quick.
