"Side of Spoon" - SOLD



Click Here to Bid

I've spent some time this last week or so on the couch with my computer - mostly streaming movies to keep myself distracted from the itching, but also looking at art. Today I found a new artist (to me) that I LOVE. Her name is Jennifer McChristian and she is worth checking out if you haven't already. It inspired me to get up and paint something, no matter how simple.

She is amazing - don't you think? I found her a couple of years ago and I could kick myself for not buying one of her paintings "back before she was so famous"!

I'm pleased that you are feeling better and that you have begun to paint again. This one is well up to your very high standards, fresh and vibrant as ever. Thanks for the link to Jennifer McChristian - I can see what you mean.

Jen is a cool artist, she was in the Salon also this year. Glad you're feeling, better and on the mend. Hope you feel well enough to work on your new studio and have a good weekend.

I am glad you are feeling better and were inspired to paint. Jennifer McChristian is new to me, so thanks for writing about her.

Luscious apple, and I love the negative space around the spoon and the shadows. Feel better!

Jenn also has a great blog... but the sad news is she doesn't post on it very often... : (

Yes, Jennifer is great - I've been watching her for awhile now. If you're surfing the net today you might enjoy the work of Tim Horn too - http://www.horndesign.com Besides being very talented he's also a great guy, very nice. Located in the northern CA.

This is a lovely painting! Glad you're on the mend! I know all too well about trying to keep creativity flowing while dealing w/ health stuff -I've taken to finding interesting stuff in the hospital to sketch:) Hang in there!

Talk about candy apple red! We all know you're a whiz at apples but the spoon steals the show for me. The mark of a true artist is being able (and wanting) to paint when not feeling well. Bravo!

Thanks for the Mc Christian recomendation--I love seeing good artists. You would also love Jeremy Mann. His cityscapes are simply stunning. And look up Mark Bohne too--he does small landscapes that are so powerful you can't believe just 6"x7".

Gorgeous!
I didn't know the itch was still there... I hope you get better soon ...

Jen said...

Great job on the apple, you made it "shine" and the reflection on the spoon is just right. Glad you're on the mend.

Just beautiful

I agree with Suzanne. You are a pro and you paint when you have a
perfectly good reason not to.
Love Jennifer McChristian.

Wow!

The reds in this apple are beautiful and intense!

Just lovely!
