"Oh Honey" and Coos Bay Art Museum

"Oh Honey"
oil on canvas, 40"x 30"

I painted honey in jars earlier in the year and I loved it so much that I tried again, bigger this time and with lots more details... What beautiful colors to work with... and all the glass. Loads of fun to paint.

AND I should add that I have a piece accepted into another National Juried show. This one is at the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay, Oregon. The theme is "Fish and Fishing" and with my sense of humor I chose to enter my swedish fish painting called "No Escaping the Bag" and they bit! I'm very excited. It will open in December and be there until the middle of February. I have a feeling it might be the only candy fish there...

"Sweet Catch"

"Sweet Catch"
0il on canvas, 48"x24"

I guess I just love a good Swedish fish and I'm back to painting them again. I also wanted to work on some clouds so this was a great combo for a whimsical painting...
