Fruit Sculpture

Oil on canvas panel

This was painted from a photo that caught my eye in an issue of Bon Appetit magazine, advertising Vitamix, a blender.  I changed a few small things, ​but not much.  It was a good exercise and I enjoyed it.

Betty's Clown

Oil on canvas

​This puppet clown was given to my guy, Joe, by his mother.  Betty was a victim of breast cancer twenty years ago, so of course, anything of hers is treasured by her son.  I've always liked this guy and we keep him displayed.  Can't help but smile when he catches my eye.  And a small confession:  the "real clown" has checks on parts of his outfit which I didn't even attempt to incorporate in this painting.
