PB&J with Milk No.2

6 x 6 oil on hardboard panel

The ebay paintings presented this week are all drawn from my repertoire of common themes. When I work up the photography for these paintings, I take hundreds of shots of my set-ups, cull out my favorites, and crop them into what (I think) are pleasing compositions. This creates a huge bank of photographs, so it's hard not to return to the well. I come back essentially for two reasons: First, to offer collectors who have missed out on previous auctions of this particular subject another chance to obtain a painting, and secondly, I have a lot of unused images which I like, and still want to paint. This may read like I'm apologizing for the repetition of my subject matter, but in actuality I'm just describing my M.O. Having said that, I do have a couple of less familiar subjects going up this week. If you'd like to bid on the painting above, you can access the auction by clicking here.

I think that is very smart of you. I recently had to go through a lot of photos and put only the "best" in a folder. There were just o many photos to keep flipping through.

I so appreciate the explanation of some of your method. I think the way an artist works in the studio is as interesting and compelling as the art they produce. Thank you for sharing.
