Plums in Bowl,still life,oil on canvas,6x6,price$150

These are Italian plums in a Chinese rice bowl. I'm not sure about the background color. I think a stronger color will make the plums stand out better.

African Violet #2,still life,oil painting,8x8,price$275

This is the second painting of the African Violet gift. It has been a very hard, long month for me. Painting keeps my mind centered on something other then my loss. I still have so much paper work to do. I will try to do as much painting as I can.
