Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 7 x 5 inches — 18 x 13 cm
Here’s another painting of one of my most favorite subjects — peeled citrus fruits. I never get tired of painting them and this grapefruit especially was a lot of fun to do.
I spent several days visiting relatives in the countryside last week. I can’t wait to paint some landscapes from the pictures that I took there! Here are a few photos:
Photo: Farm Scene | Most of the tall grasses were brown and dried but the paddies were already planted full of rice!
Photo: The “Makahiya” or “Touch Me Not” Flower | A plant which closes its leaves when touched. It’s too bad I wasn’t able to see it firsthand as I only learned about this interesting trait when I returned home.
Photo: Shady Dirt Road | I love shady, tree-lined dirt roads…
Photo: Sunlit Treetops | …And bright, sunlit treetops!
Photo: Nesting Hen | I was so excited when I saw this hen sitting inside the basket. I wish I could have gotten closer to take a better photograph but I didn’t want to spook her!
