Poppies & Apples



Hello, I painted this one yesterday with my group Mason Area Painters. I took a box full of set ups and people picked from that what they wanted to paint. I chose this, I loved the red through out and I always enjoy painting this sweet little green Ball jar. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. I just love hanging out with a group of people that share my passion.

I have been very busy painting but can't post most of it. I painted 3 small paintings for an event called "Secret Artworks", maybe when it gets closer I'll post those. Also I am working on 2 paintings for a "Holiday card" competition, this is the 3rd year Representative Beck has chosen an image for his Holiday card. Last year I took second place and my painting sold while it was hanging in the gallery.

This Friday night is "First Friday" at our studio in the Middletown Pendleton Art Center and you are probably sick of hearing about it but I am the Featured Artist this month, lol. I hung all of my art the other day and now I am putting together serving dishes and thinking about food. I'm really excited if you can't tell. Stop by if you live in the area, we are open 5-9 on Friday and 11-2 on Saturday.

I love that all of you visit and please take time to comment. <3

An excellent painting. The apples remind me of Autumn for some reason or maybe it is just that I'm chilly.

Sounds like you have been busy Barbara! I love both of these paintings, that green jar is so beautiful, and the apples have just the perfect amount of shine. :))

Well hi there Bill, so great to have you back and commenting. I hope things are good in you life.

Thanks so much Crystal! Both photos are the same painting, I cropped a closer photo so you could see detail. Maybe it's confusing.

Hello Miss Debra! Red and green always works for me too. This blue green jar is becoming a favorite of mine. I think I am ready for Friday, hoping for a good crowd with money to spend, lol.
