NEWER PAINTINGS AND OLDER PAINTINGS



After some good critiques by my blogger buddies - thanks! - I revised this painting.  I think it works now.  What do you think?




Other than this, I am pulling out old unfinished paintings to look at and maybe work on again. 


Here is one I may tackle - a full sheet of tomatoes in a box.  The photo came from a Salt Lake City, Utah farmer's market a couple of year's ago.  I'm calling it
Utah Heirlooms

Much better indeed Rhonda, I love how you never give up and it does pay in the end!

This second one more than works, Rhonda, it rocks! I love the detailing on the peelings, and that knife is just perfect. The plate situation was cleared up and it looks super now. A cool, clean painting.

Rhonda - love the blue plate - it is so good you save your old paintings and pull them out and find solutions - some I keep but I confess alot I gesso over or toss. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

Perfection Rhonda. You've managed it in both pieces to my eyes. Perfect colors on those tomatoes too.

Thanks so much, Teresa, Debbie and Mick!

Susan, thanks! I like how you are working on that negative painting recently - not easy to master, but you'll get it!

Gracias, Sonia! Gracias por visitarnos y por tu comentario.

Thanks, Vicki and Hallie (Hallie, I just have one of these little paring knives - maybe it's part of your set? ha ha)

Thanks so much, Kathryn, Jane and Sherry :)

Your plate has turned out really well. Lovely painting.
The tomatoes are looking really good. I look forward to seeing the final painting.

I like the tomatoes very much. And the idea to look through my old works with new eyes, too.
