Silver Cup with Lemon and Egg Cup

It has been a while since I tried a painting with a really dark background.  Silver cup is a rather pretentious name for what is really an inexpensive plastic vase but silver cup sounds so much better.

First real snow of the season-- 6 inches of very wet, heavy snow.  Shoveling was my strength training for the day.

Pink Gerbera

Brrrr…it is 7 degrees outside and the temp is still dropping.

Had major difficulties photographing this painting and the above is the best I can do.  The background is actually darker and the gerbera daisy is a deep pink--not the red of the photograph.  But enjoyed doing this painting and wanted to share it.
