Two Turnips

These turnips had tops and bottoms trimmed to be stored for the winter. I love how the tiny green top re-sprouted. Of course the fun part was the cast shadow of this green symbol of life.

Next to the Umbrella

Here I captured one of my painting buddies stepping back from the easel. The underside of the umbrella is illuminated by the early morning sun which attracted me to this scene in the first place. I kept the surrounding greenery simple, while tree trunks and cast shadow are leading to the focal point.

Red and Orange

This Pomegranate had all colors from pink to orange to purple. I find that the color red with all its nuances is still a struggle for me. I guess I need to paint more red fruits and veggies ...

More Apples

Another apple painting as they are easily available and always sitting on my kitchen counter. The multi coloration offered a nice challenge.

Peppers and Onion for Dinner

Here is an arrangement with complimentary colors. The onion was put in place to be the anchor to hold it all together. I keep on wondering if the composition is too split in the middle -?

4 Bananas

A very familiar sight, bananas are probably the most popular fruit. Even though they grow in South Florida, these came from the store. I enjoyed to play with the yellows, pinks and the different plains of the fruit, in particular banana number 3 is just peaking out from under.
