Red Gems Spilled



20x20"
Oil on two inch profile gallery wrapped stretched canvas
$489.00 (Canadian funds)

Okay, so I said I wasn't going post my larger work, well the thing is I have ran behind in painting little ones and won't have the time this week to do anything but teach so here you go something I did a bit ago. It was a challenge painting this juicy subject as it started to dry up and shrivel under my lights very quickly. But what a lot of fun it was trying to capture all the busyness of this one!

Oh and by the way this is painting 109 on this blog! Wow what an adventure this has been! Thanks to all of you who have been along for the ride!
