Cantaloupe and Antique Bottle 11 x 14 on Panel

I decided it was time to paint a slice of cantaloupe again and this time I added the antique bottle that I bought on EBay last year. I think for my next painting I will paint cantaloupe again. It is really fun to paint with all of the oranges and the variety of colors you find in each slice. Thanks to all of the people that showed up for the opening the other night. I really enjoy seeing and talking with my friends at these shows. The paintings of all of the artists were wonderful! So many styles and colors.

Flow Blue with Grapes 12 x 16 Oil on Panel

I started and stopped this painting a few times in the last few weeks. The pitcher was missing its handle so I glued it back on and painted the handle into the painting. These grapes had a different name to them and were very colorful compared to just the red grapes or black grapes.

Gold Vase with Little White Vase 11 x 14 Oil on Panel

It's September now and its time to bring out that wonderful gold vase of mine that I love to paint. Where did this hot summer go? Of course where I live we will have hot weather until at least October. I still didn't have enough beach time this summer. I guess it was better then the last 2 years since I didn't even make it to the beach. Anyway this painting has that autumn feel with the golds, olives, and reds.
