Here are a few still-lifes my friend, Chris and I shot back in April. I think I will be starting a few paintings soon using these ideas. I love the challenge of painting silver.

I have been dying to try a back-lit piece of fruit for a huge 40 x 60....I think this would be amazing.....I love the translucency mixed with the delicate edges....I will leave the sheep out in the background!

We liked the composition but the white background was detracting. It still has potential. I cant wait to grab some of the blueberries and Rainier cherries for some colorful still-lifes this month.
