Spinnaker,seascape,oil on canvas,10x8,price$500

I thought that I had posted this painting already since I painted it a while back. But I didn't see it in my gallery on this site. So here it is. Someone asked me if I had a boat because I paint so many. No, I just love being out on the bay and looking at the boats, the sea, the Islands and so on. Then I paint them.

Persimmons and Mango,still life,oil on canvas,6x6,price$200

This is today's painting with two photos. One I took in shadow with me between the sun and the painting. The first one is taken in the sun. Same painting. I did this painting with a palette knife. Persimmons are a hard color to match. If they are painted to red/pink they look like strawberries, to orange/red and they look like tomatoes. They have to be orange/pink.
