I took this photo on impulse almost exactly a year ago when I was living in a Boston suburb.  I was always amazed at how the neighborhood looked when there was a heavy snow and the effect that the streetlights created when looked at from an aerial view.  Our apartment was on a main street and you could see endless rows of radiant yellow light on either side, especially aglow through the veil of snow.

White Onion and Aquamarine Necklace (no.32)

8"x 8"x 1", oil on masonite panel









This is how it would look framed (actual painting does not include frame):  


  

This is still life #32 in my attempt at an ongoing "Painting A Day" challenge inspired by the likes of Duane Keiser and Abbey Ryan. I had had this image in my head the second I spotted the pile of white onions while perusing the produce section of my local grocery store.  I am deeply in love with high contrast paintings using a tiny bit of color while staying as close to black and white as possible and, much like my white pumpkin piece, I saw the opportunity to explore this with the onion.  I set this up on a shelf in our china cabinet. I like the dark wood against the off white wall and it also gets the perfect amount of light for a high contrast painting.  I held onto the onion for a while to allow the subtle sepia red tones to come out at the very top and through the outer most layer.  It is paired with an aquamarine birthstone necklace.

Gala Apple and Teaspoon Timelapse







Gala Apple and Teaspoon (no.29)

8"x8"x1", oil on masonite panel

SOLD

If you'd like to purchase a print of this painting, please feel free to visit my Etsy shop!


 This is how it would look framed (actual painting does not include frame):  




This is still life #29 in my attempt at an ongoing "Painting A Day" challenge inspired by the likes of Duane Keiser and Abbey Ryan. I was looking to create a very somber, fall inspired and almost melancholic mood with this piece.  It was set up on an antique nightstand, giving it the dark cherry colored wood effect, in our bedroom with all the shades down save for one behind the bed.  This gave it just enough light to illuminate the vibrant gala apple hues and barely suggest the form of the spoon.  I really enjoyed playing with the balance of cadmium red and yellow on the apple while trying to hold onto the form, and struggled more with the spoon.  However I feel a great sense of accomplishment after completing anything glass or metallic as they are the most difficult surfaces for me to master.
