Teacup and Hug (NA)

Teacup and Hug by Sandra Galda
5"x5" oil on gesso board

This was really fun and surprisingly easy to paint due to the similar tones on the cup, the scrabble pieces and the surface they rest upon. I think if I had made the shadows a bit more purple, the contrast could have been more pleasing. Time for a tea break!

Well this was fun to paint. My son requested it for his new apartment kitchen. He would also like one of a bottle of Mayo, a can of tuna, and some peanut butter........he is always hungry......

Allspice (NA)

Allspice by Sandra Galda
4"x4" oil on gesso board

I tried to keep this image a little looser. I use this spice for baking, particularly in the fall and winter! Recieved a nice fine pointed brush and an artist's field box full of tubes of oil paint at a garage sale last weekend. My hubby bought it all for very little money, thank you honey!!! It was a wonderful find-someones junk is often another's treasure!!! Sorry, I caught the metal clip on the upper right hand corner again-My son has this one in his new apartment kitchen.

Three Strawberries (NA)

I worked on this 8"x10" image again, started it a while ago. I always find the seeds are really challenging, best solved with a simple approach.

Domino Skyscrapers

Domino Skyscrapers by Sandra Galda
4"x4" oil on gessobord
I was away at a family wedding and some family visiting. Now back and here is a quick painting of dominos. My daughter suggested them as a subject for a small painting. They remind me of skyscrapers and buildings!
