Soft orange Prinrose,still life,oil on canvas,6x6,price$200

This is the second orange primrose that I painted in a softer, almost a watercolor, style. Today I varnished most of my winter paintings outside with Gamvar. The Gamblin co. is so helpful if you have a question or two they will get right back to you with help and knowledge about their products.

First Orange Primrose,still life,oil on canvas,6x6,price$200

This is the first orange primrose I painted yesterday. I felt it was a bit heavy so today's orange primrose painting is a bit looser. I like them both. They are just different styles.

I haven't painted grapes in a while. These were sitting on our kitchen counter looking as if they needed to be painted. I started out with a lose brush painting and ended up with more detail then I wanted to do. But I'm happy with it and it was fun to do.
