Still Life

Still Life, 12x9 oil

I love this old black phone.  I had it sitting on a table for a little while, (in my house), and it seemed to make itself right at home.  At any moment it might have rang, or so it seemed.  Most of us have now opted for mini computers that we carry around in our pockets.  Is there still life in these charming phones or are they truly a thing of the past.

Love

Love, 14x11 oil

Here is another painting to add to my continuing theme of 'Salad Bling'.  I was washing a basket of a variety of fruit when this cherry and plum seemed to be instantly attracted to each other.  I think they make a great couple.

Little Sparrow

Little Sparrow, 6x6 oil

I've been trying to paint the different varieties of birds that have visited my backyard this summer.  The sparrows are the regulars.  They've been here ever since I put the first bird house up.  I think of them as my wild backyard pets.
