Little Mr. Salt Chef Guy

Took a break from the fruit. This is a little salt shaker that I think my friend Nadia gave me years ago. I don't know what happened to the pepper (I have a lot of lonely shakers). This was so much fun to paint and I flew through it. I think I need to take more of a break from fruit.

Fruit is a great learning tool though because it is really challenging to capture the color and light.

I am trying to paint a lot of 4x6 panel paintings for the Lowell Open Studios at the end of September.

Have to figure out how to frame these.

I added a photo so you can see what my little still life set up is like. For some reason this cracks me up.
