Of all the subjects I have painted during the course of this daily painting journey, my most favorite are still portraits of people. It’s funny though how very seldom I paint them. I am always challenging myself to make the skin color and texture more realistic, more lifelike.

I used the same green cloth as the one in the previous apple painting because I loved its silky texture and the fringe edge. So fun to paint!

Orange with Harmonica Oil Painting

(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm

We’ve had this Hohner harmonica for decades although I still haven’t learned to play it. I’ve always wanted to paint it because of its antique look, but I could never find the perfect composition for it. For sure I’ll be doing another painting which will feature it better.

By the way, I keep forgetting to mention that artist Monica Burnette recently talked about edges in paintings on her blog and she featured my “Grapes in Small Bowl” in one of her posts. Check it out here! Thank you, Monica!

My fellow members at Daily Painter Originals, Kelley MacDonald and Susan Roden, are having a donut exchange over at their blogs (more popularly known as the “Donut War”). They have been throwing donuts (paintings, of course) of all brands, shapes and colors — sugar-coated, frosted, jelly-filled, chocolate. Current status of the Donut war is a truce so, I think, this is as good a time as any to show my neutral, plain glazed donut.

I once painted my (then) almost empty blue paint tube. I enjoyed it so much so I decided to do another one, this time the near empty yellow tube. There’s something about painting the tools that I use every day to create these little “dailies”. It’s almost like spending quality time with your best friend.

My new favorite subject — lollipops!

When I began this blog, my personal goal was to keep it updated with new paintings strictly on a daily basis for at least one year. Well, I’m guilty of not being able to keep that goal, most especially during the past two and a half weeks.

On a positive note though, I sold some of the small paintings and spent those two and a half weeks packing and mailing them as well as finishing a commission. To those who have bought my paintings or commissioned me, thank you so much for your support!

There are only a few more days left before I officially close my 70 Paintings for $70 Each Anniversary Special. It’s only until the 15th of August. After which, prices will go back to the original $100 or $80. Shipping is free anywhere in the world for all paintings. Click on the image below to see the 70 paintings included in the sale:

I can remember when I was just starting out as a daily painter that I hated to do grapes. I thought then that they were just too difficult to paint correctly. Anyway, they are now a favorite subject of mine. I find it really gratifying to see the little berries come to life as I paint the bloom!

One of my most favorite painting of grapes that I have done is the one above. This will be the last grapes painting included in the 365 Daily Paintings so I thought I’d compile all that I have done since the beginning…well, let’s start with the second that I did since the first one was what made me hate painting grapes in the first place!

I have seen many paintings of indoor scenes like living rooms and restaurants but this is, I think, the very first time I’ve ever tried to paint one. I am quite pleased with the result and I must say that it was a very interesting experience and a welcome change.

On another note, I finally gave up with all the spam comments I receive every single day so I spent some time yesterday to look for a solution. I installed a plugin which adds a word verification feature just like the one in Blogger. As much as I hate to add this inconvenience, it just seemed that I was getting more and more spam everyday. Anyway, I would still love to hear from you, so I hope you will not mind this. If you encounter any problems when you leave a comment, please let me know. Thank you!
