6" by 6" oil on cradled panel
This is the last of the Ratatouille series. The garlic sat in my studio for weeks. I thought it would be the hardest but in some ways it was the easiest. I still like the tomato the best!
I am gearing up for the 30 day challenge, ordering panels and planning subjects. So far I am thinking of garden flowers, tractors, teapots, shiny objects and of course my favorite, landscapes. I t will be a busy summer!

14.5 x10.5 Pastel of a scene that caught my eye on the way to get ice cream. I did this one on Museum Board with an under-painting of clear gesso with Nickel Azo Gold and Terracotta primer to establish values. When it is dry I touch sand for a smooth finish and then apply the pastels. This time I used the sennelier set with my old favorites, nupastel.
