Backyard Peaches

8 x 10, oil on canvas

I love peaches! We planted a peach tree in the back yard and are hoping for our first juicy crop. Right now they resemble fuzzy grapes. For now we'll be satisfied with store bought peaches that are sitting in our bowl in the kitchen.

Yellow Rose

12 x 12, oil on canvas

This is my first entry into the world of daily painting! Doing a close-up of a rose and getting everything lined up kind of reminds me of capturing the features in a portrait painting. Except the rose doesn’t mind if it’s nose, I mean petals are too big.
 This is painted on a 1½” deep gallery-wrapped canvas.
