Jam Jar Label Apricot

Multiple tries on these. I find them tough to paint.  First they are velvety, so they present no highlight, which helps more than I realized to bring the lighted area forward and convey roundness. Next, they are luminous, which means you've got to understand the mixing of yellows very well so that the clear yellows sing out against the muddier yellows and all this happens in the right passages. And last, they are sort of unassuming with their soft folded flesh. Like babies.

Mugshot 61: President Obama

This is a painting I did to enter a show in Charlotte, N. C. that will be up during the  Democratic Convention. I think it is to be held in a very large space like a warehouse.  The title of the show is, All Things Obama.  I am so sorry I won't be able to see it, can you even imagine the wild variety? It should be hilarious fun.

Farm Girl Jam Label Olallieberries

Farm Girl Jam:  Olallieberries!  I'm not certain how this differs in taste from the boysenberry and the blackberry as I didn't get a jar of this one in my care package from the Farm Girl.  They are longer and more narrow though. I hope I get a jar of this to try.

Jam Jar Label, Strawberries

Oy vey, it photographed a bit dark.  This is for Farmgirl or Farm Girl, I will have to check.  I think this product is coming out in the gourmet food market in October.  Thanks everyone for your kind comments.
