Pork Rose

It's been a few weeks since I've posted, and though I was feeling rusty, I painted my first rose and am pretty happy with it.  I thought the rose was going to be more problematic than the pig.  Boy was I surprised!  I had a few titles in mind:  "Pig N Rose", "Rosy Pig", but I am happy with Pork Rose.

Southern Rooster -- SOLD

I guess I'm on a rooster kick.  I love the colors in their feathers.  I had a lot of fun painting him.
He had so many colors in his beautiful feathers.

Wrong Room Buddy -- SOLD

There are times when painting can be so easy and a painting simply paints itself.  I know that all artists (writers, painters, sculptors, etc.) all feel this way.

This was not one of those times.  Originally there were three corkscrews, but the bottom corkscrew kept reminding me of a dead grasshopper on its side.  Don't ask me why.  I have no idea.  Then I thought about toenail clippers or a potato peeler - none of which worked with the composition.

I decided to go with the spoon who looked as though he just slinked into the wrong room.

Volendam Rooster - SOLD

I recently went to Amsterdam and there were these gorgeous chickens and roosters walking around town, so my friend and I took photos of them.  Today on my lunch hour, I needed to paint, so I painted this proud guy.

Two Against Two - SOLD

Squared Off, Two Against Two, The Pow Wow ... I had a few titles in mind for this painting, but saw a little aggression and movement coming from the apple slice on the right, so I went with Two Against Two.
