One More

I decided to call this "One More" just because you might want one more bite. It had coconut on top and was yummy after painting during the day with it. I found it at a fabulous bakery in Bristol RI.

These peppers were found at a roadside stand. They reminded me of a spicy salsa.

"Get Going While the Going is Good"

It looks like this little one is escaping. I always think of pumpkins when Fall rolls around. Fall is my favorite time of year, I guess because I love Halloween so much.
This painting is a 8"x 8" oil on gesso board.

Cliff Walk, Newport Rhode Island

I painted this scene when my plien air group was invited to paint on Salve Regina's property. Salve Regina is an old prominent college located in Newport, Rhode Island. This is the view from their administration building.
The view is part of the Cliff Walk along the ocean where many famous mansions are located. A beautiful walk which many tourist love taking during the summer months.
It is 9"x12" oil.

This was painted when cherries were not as expensive back in August. I am only now able to post due to trouble photographing. I had to have a nice overcast day like today to photograph it outside while waiting for the remnants from hurricane Earl to arrive. :)
Cherries is a 6"x6" oil.

Summer Pears

I found this great piece of material (actually a placemat from Crate & Barrel ) for the background to these luscious pears. Unfortunately there was only one left as usual on sale.

Jelly Donut

I enjoy reading Kelly MacDonald's daily blog. She is in a donut painting war with a fellow daily painter.
I decided to try my hand at a Dunkin Donut jelly filled one. I would like to add that by the time I got around to painting it most of the powdered sugar melted off due to the high humidity we are experiencing now on the east coast.
