Pewter Pot and Onion Skin

Ah, my favorite little pewter prop. I can make it any size. Onion skins are pretty exciting, too. Oil painting on canvas

Sorry this is an off-topic question(although the comic is very cute!). I reltceny purchased your "Vegan Lunchbox" Cookbook and I LOVE it! I wondered if you had any nutritional information for the recipes. Maybe it's there and I'm just not finding it, but I wondered about that after I made your amazing Carrot and Red Lentil Indian soup last night. Thanks! Kara

I was kinda hoping these were photographs, so i don't feel so bad about my work. but they're not... :) Amazing job!

Artist Reply: Thank you, Aliona. In my opinion, painting still life (not copying the work of others) is the very best teacher for painters. YOU choose the arrangement and lighting and then do your best to paint EXACTLY what is before you. What could be easier???

I love the warm and cool tones, beautiful!

You remind me of Helen Van Wyk! You even have reflective light in it which most artists miss! You have all the elements of light...highlight, body tone, body shadow, cast shadow and reflective light! You inspire me!

This is just awesome!Love your composition, colors, the way you see the colors in ordinary subjects. Recently I've been accused by my friend, a painter himself, that I paint dull and ordinary thigs, but it's not the subject, it's the way a painter sees and feels about it. Your work is glowing with light....
