Five Lipsticks

Oil on panel, 5x7 inches. Not for sale.

I often struggle with taking photos of my paintings (in part because I need better lighting), so this time I'm posting two! I can get a good representation of the color, but it rarely captures the texture. The texture is key in this piece, so in the second shot I've pointed a "daylight" lamp down on the painting so you can see the thick paint blobs.

Ah, the beer that's like a meal. This one is sold, but I'll be painting more like this. Check back!

6x6 inches, oil on panel. (Reserved)

Just finished this "study" last night (the quotes are there because it ended up far more developed than what I had planned!). This is just one part of the composition for the next version, which will be much larger and include a second figure.

This was the first time I've tried to paint a figure at this size. Let's just say I have a new appreciation for people who can paint miniatures!
