Plums

Plums 12" x 12" Oil on wood panel $275.00

For those of you that follow me, you may have noticed I haven't posted in a while, I have been going through quite the artist block at the moment, I have been painting but haven't been able to get through a whole painting in the last month, I am not exactly why but I guess it's not uncommon, just been really frustrating, anyway managed to get through one finally.

So enjoy as I don't now when I may get another one up. No worries I am sure things will turn around, I will just keep plugging away.



Feel free to email me here if you want to chat or interested in buying this painting. Comes ready to hang and shipping is included in the price anywhere in North America.

Hi bloggies

I have been in a funk the last little while so no new paintings to show, not sure what it is but I am sure it will pass. Since I haven't painted in a while I thought I should post something. Anyway Last week I took all my objects that have been hanging around my studio taking up much needed space, turned out to be quite a few, into the local thrift store, kept 1 or 2 things but everything went bye bye. While I dropped off all the items I picked up 8 new ones that peaked my interest. Anyway so since it's been a while I thought I would post a sketch of some of my new objects, I set this up last week and it sitting there waiting for me to paint. although you can't tell from the sketch the colours on these objects are awesome, not sure why I haven't started this yet.
It could be I am already stuck and I haven't even started yet, so it could be there is something not working with this at the moment, guess I better figure out what it is.

My drawing skills are a bit rusty but I have begun to sketch out my ideas more and more of late so I am getting a little better but mainly I am sketching for value and help clarify so true likeness isn't on the top of my list. I find this easier for me if I do a quick sketch and figure out what may go wrong before I get to painting. Planning planning and more planning.

Later
Dave
