Pstel on La Carte paper 11" X 14"
I had painted these onions about a week back.  I wanted to make a couple of changes before uploading on my blog. But once I move on to another painting, it takes me forever to get back to it. Finally decided to finish it today. The twin onions sprouting totally stole my heart!  It's still laying pretty on my desk,  tempting me to paint it again. :)

Orange Adventure

Pastel on La Carte paper 5" X 7"
In my previous painting I felt that I should have chosen a different color for the background. The color of the oil was the same as that of the background. Whenever I have such a feeling, I push myself to the other extreme. This time I chose the background color to be the complement of the subject. I feel much happier. :)

Thank you for visiting my blog. Hope you enjoy being here!!

Oil and Pepper

Pastel on La Carte paper 8" X 10"
For a long time I have been thinking of painting this olive-oil dispenser bottle. It finally got it's turn. I had a hard time in the kitchen without it though, didn't realize how indispensable this dispenser is!!

Leaning on an egg

Pastel on La Carte paper  5" X 7"
After spending a couple of days contemplating what to paint, ended up with this shallot. Somehow the egg came as an obvious choice to pair. I must be thinking omelette! Afterwards I made a trip to the local farmer's market and picked up some interesting fruits and veggies to paint. That's coming up next!

Cherry by the bowl

Pastel on La Care paper 4" X 6"
Cherries are one of my favorite fruits. They were not as much fun painting though. I plan to work on  a new series, but still haven't found anything that excites me as much as the sprouting onions. So I will continue to explore!

Slice of apple

Pastel on La Carte paper 5" X 7"
I made a large still-life with onions to close the series I have been working on. I will be uploading that on the blog soon. It's now time for a change, and an apple always comes in handy!
