There are a few artists out there who have elevated deserts to high art, with the great grandaddy of them being Wayne Thiebaud, but some other artists I like also have tackle the subject with skill, as can be seen here, and here.

I'm perfectly content to stand in their shadows on this one, but I just had to take advantage of the last little bit of birthday cake I had left over from my birthday...

Another study of the Kwan Yin bust. This time in natural daylight, against a green background. The way whites change as a result of dominant local color an light is endlessly fascinating to me.

This airplane was an interesting challenge-- backlit on a silver metallic paper.

I have progress shots, but I'm a little too lazy too carve them out and post them at the moment.

The colors look a little muddy in this image-- I'll re shoot for better color when it dries.

I bought some colored paper to serve as more varied background material for object painting. This little bugger gave me some grief in the middle (see the erased part), but I think I brought it back well enough. I ended up chasing the light a little on this painting-- the values and colors were starting to change pretty dramatically from when I started a few hours before. I had to stop it where it was, or I'd still be at it tonight...

More paper airplanes. They're fun to paint for a couple of reasons: interesting edges, neat composition, and challenging light play. Although the shapes are deceptively simple, they take as long as anything else to paint. No progress shots for one of them-- my camera's batteries need charging!

Today is a 'two-fer' First a rose, then a figure study.

They are both still very wet. I'll likely re shoot the images tomorrow for better color.

Update July 28th: puttered a bit more on the figure painting, and re shot both paintings for better color.

Each is approximately 5 X 7 inches on canvas...

Tiny hula girl...!

It's weird painting something so close to my subject matter of choice over the years— people, but rendered in a crude cartoony fashion. I have a hard time looking at the face, although it is very close to the actual figure's features.

Two more sake bottles. I thought it might be interesting to mix it up and do a light on dark as opposed to Wednesday's piece. The color on the final shot isn't the greatest (although it's not bad)-- the paint's still very wet, so I'll probably update the image tomorrow.

I forgot to take progress shots, but here is a rarity for me: a still life.

This is a small sake bottle, with a very uneven glazed surface. I got the inspiration from looking at Duane Keiser's blog.

I've been thinking about doing more still life/object painting in any case... but gosh, you see Keiser's work, and it makes you want to dash off to the easel tout suite.

Since I've been a little scarce over the last month or so, I thought that I'd show extra steps of progress along the way. This piece is 16 X 20 inches on linen.

This is the third time that I've painted this particular image-- the first time about two years ago. That original piece was a disaster, and I knew that I wanted to paint it again. I painted a study for it in November. This feels much closer to the painting that was in my minds eye.
