Cranberry Dance, 6x6 Oil

We've all had wonderful and, well, not-so-wonderful Thanksgivings.  Yesterday was one of my best, and I hope you all had a great one, too.  Other than wishing for more time to talk to my kids, I couldn't have asked for anything more, and we had no burnt food, illnesses, fires or other catastrophes!  My son Conor made the cranberry sauce this year at my house, and 'rescued' 5 little berries from the pot.  He put them on this light green glass plate with bubbles on the sides, and they sat under a light on the counter - I had to paint them, you know? Many challenges, the biggest being the white table having the 'shadow' of the green plate with the little bubbles showing.  I may do more cranberries, just because it gives me an excuse to use my Perylene Red!  Happy Thanksgiving, and a safe weekend to all...  This is also not going on ebay (when the market picks up a bit I'll put them back on, but it cost me $$$$ to sell NONE of them through ebay last month!) but email me if you're interested. ($100)

  4. This painting is marvelous! Perfect.
    I appreciate what you said about ebay--I was considering doing it and one of my art teachers who's done it in the past recommended NOT doing it...at least not in the current (sigh) economic climate.
    Cheers....

    Nancy, thanks for stopping by - yeah, the variations on the white with the punches of red are what got me to paint this!
