5.5 x 5.5 oil on hardboard
. . . and a loaf of bread to finish off the week. I really enjoy painting bread, and Karen has made it clear to me that I, "should always have a bread painting in the works". This half loaf composition with the plastic bag is a favorite of mine. I love that serpentine line that runs the length of the loaf. It's not clearly evident in this image, but there are a lot of subtle colors, and textures in this piece. I'm attempting to work more color into my paintings. In my pre-oil days, when I worked in watercolor and colored pencil, there was much more color in my work. For some reason, when I switched to oil my palette became more muted. Now I'm trying to bring back that variety of color. It's a glacially slow process, but I'm getting there. If you'd like to bid on this painting, you can access the auction by clicking here.
