Gold Vase 11 x 14 on Panel

I decided it was time to bring out my gold vase to paint again. I am working on paintings for a show and the gold vase always turns out well when I paint it.

In the past few weeks I have had to buy a new computer with Windows 7, plus a new printer, Office 2007 and one new camera for freelance jobs that I do. Along with that I had to spend time with Fuji and with HP to find out that the camera I use to take photos of my work was obsolete even though it is only 3 years old. Fuji said it wouldn't have any updates for this camera. HP was able to show me how I could use my camera, which was a relief. It has been overwhelming to work with all of this new equipment at once and that is one main reason I haven't posted anything in a few weeks. Hopefully now I will have more time to paint since I am getting used to all of this equipment and finally have everything working.

Peaches 12 x 16 on Panel NFS

I decided to repost this painting because after posting it I wanted to change the white bowl. I bought these peaches at the local farmer's market a few weeks ago. I saw that the peaches had leaves on them so I asked the guy if I could have the ones with leaves. I am sure he wondered why, but since he didn't ask I didn't tell him it was for me to put in the painting. Luckily I finished the painting and the peaches were still good.
