Crackers and a sandwich

Oil on canvas, 20" x 16"
I had to fool around with this one, eliminating a lot of clutter in the background- chairs, blankets, towels, people. I decided to just keep the towel on the ground, the little cooler and the seagull in the top left. Together they make kind of a "Z" that brings your eye down and then back up.

A still life

Oil on board, 8" x 10"
I got together with some friends recently- plein air painters chomping at the bit to get outside- and we painted a still life. It was nice having someone else set it up, as that's always the hardest part. Composition, composition...
