Peonies with fruit
For this piece I tried something new. I used clear gesso on masonite, so the surface was a dark brown. And then instead of painting a coloured ground, I painted directly over the clear-gessoed surface. I liked the way it worked up. After this one, I did a close-up of a peony in oil. After an hour I realized it clearly was not happening and wiped it down. Then I went back to my acrylics and worked for another hour on some fruit. Again - one for the heap. C'est la vie.

Really like this painting. It's so exciting to experiment and have a winner right out of the box.
I really love the cloth and fruit in this one, and great color combo!!!!
Kim, this is beautiful. I love the deep red background and blue table cloth. Your paintings are evolving and maturing into a unique look that is impressive. Well done!
Oh yes! This one has a resonance like a low note on the musical scale. A perfect sound.
The colours are brilliant.
Love it! Very Cezanne. Those Peonies are great too. Fantastic light!
Beautifully painted....Love the brushwork in the rose and the leaves!
Color, amazing! texture, beautiful! composition, FABULOUS! overall score 10 / 10. Pure genius!
I love this, and I love how you are so positive. When I paint one that's not working I tend to pout, I need to take a lesson from you.
Also, I'm betting it was working more than you think it was because you're too awesome for it not to. :)
No Crystal - it was junk. lol
And I ALWAYS pout but am trying to turn over a new leaf ; ) Thanx.
