Apple On The Side by Sandra Galda
5"x7" oil on gesso bord
My advice to my daughter who is sick at home from school today was "an apple a day..." 5"x7" oil on gesso board. By the way, she opted instead for Campbell's chicken noodle soup. Maybe I should paint that sometime....wait..... :)

If interested in purchasing contact my email address Thanks for looking, tell me what you think-leave a comment!

Sketch of Michelangelo's Prophet on Sistine Ceiling by Sandra Galda (NA)

No, this is not an oil painting--I know I know--this is a blog about my small oil paintings. I think should be permitted to stray just a bit, because my drawing of Michelangelo's prophet-Zechariah is I believe, so appropriate to my current task of editing, resubmitting, and upon approval, printing and binding my thesis about Michelangelo. Even though I have graduated, this "little" final task has got to be done. Graphite on paper. It is not available, because I gifted it to a special professor at Harvard whose teaching on Renaissance Art I enjoyed so much.

Engagement Rose II by Sandra Galda (NA)

Here is another try at the roses from that bouquet. It is amazing to me that some of the roses still look like roses, they are over a week old. I just keep snipping the stems is a short but surviving one! I do believe I caught it better this time, practice does help! 5x7 oil on gesso board.

Engaging Rose by Sandra Galda (NA)

This is one of the three dozen roses my hubby purchased as we were leaving NYC on our hoiliday day trip with the kids, and in particular, our soon to be engaged son and his sweet girlfriend. It was the very next day our son proposed to his wonderful girl. We are thrilled!
