Berry Good! Oil 6x6

Berry Good! 6x6
$100 + $10 S&H via Paypal

Another for the DeBlois Gallery's Itty Bitty Holiday Sale. I love painting raspberries, I don't paint the individual 'globes' on them, even though I just noticed it LOOKs like I do. I just dab varying lights of red on top of the darks, and the highlights on these babies are actually blue/gray and then the lightest of blues. I love how the shadows actually reflect a little of the hot reds as the light bounces through the clear red of the fruit!


I have two things I'd like to announce - 1) I just dropped off 20 little paintings at the North River Arts Society in Marshfield, MA (Old Main Road, right off 3A) where they will be part of the Holiday Sale THIS Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 21 and 22. 10-4 are the regular hours. Those in the 'know' show up (and pay $15) for the 'Early Bird' hour, from 9-10 on Saturday, they get to scope out the deals from all the fine artists in the South Shore Area. In the past I've put older pieces. This year I decided to put mostly current pieces in, at a reduced rate (it IS a fundraiser for a fabulous art association!). So they are less than the Daily Painting ordinary price. If you go, I guarantee you'll go again next year. I saw some amazing things dropped off last night. Oh! And on the stage there are larger paintings at great prices, too!

And 2) (still with me?) I encourage you to take a look at a blog that is relatively new, from an award winning artist who is colorful and fun, and was inspired by Julie and Julia, to blog 365 Flowers, in a very creative way! Her name is Sally Dean. Check it out....
