Here’s a new painting. I really love how it turned out.

To all who have joined my year-end giveaway so far, thank you so much for your very kind words! Your support means a lot to me.

I forgot to remove payment buttons for the paintings from which the winner could choose and one of them — the rose — sold last night. As a replacement, I’ve thrown in 3 more and the winner may now choose from 7 paintings. You can see them here along with details of the draw: Painting Giveaway.

I will announce the winner on the 4th of January so if you would like to join, all you have to do is leave a comment here.

Please be sure to leave a comment so I’ll know that you want to participate in the giveaway…a simple “I want to join” will do!

Wishing 2012 will be a good year for all of us — Happy New Year, my friends!!

This is actually a Fuji apple without most of the pink and red streaks. When I saw that it was almost all yellow, I just had to paint it.

Here’s something not related to the daily paintings. Yesterday, I wrote a short post on my other blog, Art Studio, about a commissioned artwork I completed middle of last year.

All the Abused - Black Eye Pencil Drawing

It’s a pencil drawing of a pair of eyes. If you are curious why the left eye is a black eye, read my post here: All the Abused.

I took a break from the Dancing Lady ACEO orchid series to paint this apple. For me, the overhead view of an apple is one of the most difficult to paint right, but somehow, I always end up liking the finished painting.

This apple was a joy to paint! Just to see how they look side by side, I have put together all three apple paintings sharing this composition.

The first one is daily painting #38 – Red Delicious Apple; the second is #39 – Fuji Apple.

Country Breakfast - A Painting a Day

Daily Painting #41 – Country Breakfast
(Click image for larger version)

Oil on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 5.5 inches — 14 x 14 cm

I missed posting a painting yesterday because our computer and internet connection were not working. The computer has been fixed, but the internet connection is still very slow. To make up for yesterday, I’ll try to post two today.

I’ve always wanted to try a loose painting style, and all the while I was working on this, I kept thinking, “loose, loose, loose.” It still turned out pretty controlled, but I’m pleased with it.

I think I am attracted to compositions with cloth in them. Somehow, I feel that they easily transform an ordinary still life into one which tells a story. I liked the effect so much that ideas for new arrangements immediately came into my mind, such as painting #42 (will post that in a little while).

I’m not sure why, but this painting speaks to me of a quiet country kitchen in the early morning (hence the title). Perhaps it is because of the lighting, or maybe the color scheme, or maybe the Bobby Goldsboro songs that I listened to while working on it…

Note: I try to make the images on this blog as accurate as possible, but I could not make the orange here a little less redder without making the apple too yellow. There is also some glare showing, especially on the wood board, making the brushstrokes more obvious than they really are.

The fine red skin around the apple slice was difficult. I was struggling to keep it from mixing with the surrounding colors.

Whenever I encounter this problem, I say that I’ll let the painting dry for a day or two before adding the fine lines and strong highlights. Then I remember to thin the paint with enough medium and I say, “Why didn’t I do that earlier?”
