"Pickle Fork"

12x12 in. oil

We love pickles in our house. There is always a jar in our fridge. One day while looking for a snack these caught my eye as a painting subject and also a snack.
I wanted to play around with contrasting colors so I picked a red background. I like it, I hope you do too.

"Frontal Assault"

6"x12" oil
When I set up this still life to paint, I hadn't any idea I would be influenced by a book while I was painting. Funny how that works. While I was painting I was listening to a biography about George S. Patton. The thought came to mind I should name this painting "Frontal Assault". I sat back and imagined the cup on the left trying to climb over the other cups to get to the cup on the right. For what reason? Well that's for your own imagination!

Enjoy and thanks for looking!
