"Seeing Double" -Sold

We have a terrific ice storm tonight, so I drove home early from the studio and brought with me stuff to paint with. Well, here is apple number 58, oil on a 6"x6" panel. I painted this using Gamblin oil paint and Liquin medium. Wow, that Liquin really allows the paint to flow. I painted this down stairs in the home studio where I started my "Little Paintings" adventure. Old memories surfaced and oh just like the old times... painting in straight oil, with a set up light source and an actual model, I grabbed a "Gold Delicious" apple that was hanging out in the refrigerator. The only difference from old times is that I used Liquin instead of the linseed oil mix. Can you tell that this painting is leaning against a mirror?

I couldn't help myself...  put that little "58" in the painting...  : )

Hey, putting those "little" numbers on your paintings reminds me of all those times looking for the "bunny head" on the cover of Playboy. They have really good articles you know........

Vibrant yellow is Gamblin Hansa Yellow and the warmer yellow is Gamblin Cadmium Yellow Medium, oh so rich!
I should try to paint another while we are "iced" in...

Stay warm and healthy "the art of dance is like chocolate!"
