I went to art school years ago, but it's been a while since I've done any paintings. I recently started getting back into it. I didn't really do traditional paintings back then (at art school that was sort of frowned on), but it's something I've always liked. I painted these in the last few weeks. They're painted from life. The size is 8 by 10 inches, except the glass bowl one, which is 9 by 12 inches.

Absolutely brilliant!  I've never been a fan of still life painting but you've converted me!  They're all gorgeous but I'm completely in love with the glass bowl.  Beautiful!

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.

It is kind of sad how art school can get a little elitist when it comes to more traditional subject matter.  That being said, I am amazed at the detail you were able to put in considering the canvas size.  I epecially love the garlic one.

Wow, I'm in a couple of painting courses right now and I know what you mean about frowning on the traditional. I think these are great, I've always been a fan of a good still life and yours are beautiful.

I really like these. I am always a fan of the still life but I'd put any of yours on my wall in a heartbeat. I like the glass bowl and the orange best. I really like the water in the bowl of water.

Thank you for sharing your paintings.  Did you mean for the lime to look so sad?

Thanks for all your nice comments. I didn't really mean to sound so critical of art school.  Smiley It's where I learned to paint after all!

I hadn't really thought about it.  Cheesy Do you mean that it looks kind of lonesome? I guess it does. (Or do you mean that the lime is a bit on the old and shriveled up side... which it is!)  Grin

That whole picture seems lonely.  Like someone had started to make some sort of lunch or dinner and then was to depressed to finish it.  That's what I see.
