Apples and bean pot

Oil on panel, 6" x 6"
I started painting this a couple of months ago. The apples are from a tree across the street from my house, and I finally just put the finishing touches on it.
$100.00 plus shipping.

Artie, our portrait model last night, definitely had a DeNiro/ Stallone thing going…
Oil on canvas paper. I've been adding color to the Zorn palette that I usually use, this time some viridian green, and someone gave me a squeeze of cobalt violet for the hat. Not a color I'd recommend, as it has so little tinting strength.

Oil on panel, 5" x 7"
I was wondering why, lately, painting chickens has been appealing to me and realized that maybe it's because I've been reading James Gurney's blog. Chickens are very dinosaurish- especially those feet.
