Composition in Blue

Composition in Blue 24" x  24" acrylic on canvas
This is a piece I worked on in the gallery today, I was surprised that I executed it so quickly. It has a gloss on it which is complimentary for the areas that are a bit impasto.

Golden Truffle

This painting reminds me a lot of 'Jiffy Pop,' I love the intricacy of foil, there's a lot to detail to paint, I applied a palette knife to beef up the highlights. I used a combination of red and black to make the chocolate seem like a temptation.

Susi Q

Susi Q 12" x 12" oil on masonite
I painted this picture for my brother's birthday, it's his cat. When I get around to it, all the pets I know will have a portrait. I feel I succeeded in the portraying Susi Q since this cat stretches her paws like this a lot.

Sour Bite

I feel like if you master painting apples you can paint anything. I've never painted a bite in an apple before, I had to paint the bite before it oxidized, so that was an interesting challenge. I need to keep in mind to always squint, that is key.
Below is an advertisement I made for my dad's facebook page, I took it into photoshop to widen it, then I blended it using the clone tool. This image goes along with the whole 'an apple a day keeps the dentist away' thing. You also need to have good teeth to bite an apple, I suppose it would make people that can't bite apples inevitably want to.
