#41 - AppleOil on board, 7 x 5ins. Another healthy reference today. But I do have to confess it was baked in the oven with a delicious syrupy filling for dessert (thanks to Mother). She is great cook, and keeps trying to fill me up !

# 41 - Apple - small oil painting

#41 - Apple
Oil on board, 7 x 5ins.

Another healthy reference today. But I do have to confess it was baked in the oven with a delicious syrupy filling for dessert (thanks to Mother). She is great cook, and keeps trying to fill me up !

A much healthier subject for today's little painting - and I so enjoyed painting this. I tried to be looser and less fussy, and I think I managed it. I also enjoyed painting on the MDF board. I actually prefer it to canvas - a much slicker surface that allows me to move paint around more freely.

I spent yesterday priming boards !! Not a nice job, but somebody has to do it. So now I have a nice stash ready for painting, and I can get to it in earnest. The subject above is among the many leftover goodies we have from the holidays. Too much sweet stuff lying around here !
Note to Self - do NOT use edible references !!
   

# 37 - Portrait Study 1

Portrait Study 1
Oil on canvas, 12 x 16ins.

First of all - Happy New Year to all !! Hope 2007 is a great year for you.

The festivities are over - friends and family have left for home, and I am free to paint to my heart's content ! We had nothing planned for today - New Year's Day. We have indulged in too much food and revelry, so decided on a quiet day. Before I start my little paintings, I decided to start a series of studies for portraits I have been planning. This is the first study.

The studies are loosely based on some photographs I saw of prisoners in a State Penitentiary. They were taken between 1915 and 1937. I was so taken by these photos that I knew I had to capture the faces in paint. The people have no names, only numbers. I find myself fascinated by their faces - particularly their eyes. Who knows what their crimes were.

I am starting the series with small studies - 12 x 16ins.
