Plums and Petunias

7"x9" Oil on stretched canvas.  $125

There are several things about this set-up that I love.  My sister made this little blue bowl, and I have used it in a previous painting.  The plums and cherries were fun to paint, and I love their rich reds.    Hopefully the sporadic tropical winds of TS Debby will not be too harsh on my white petunias, so I can continue to use them as subjects - practice, practice, practice!   Haven't painted brass in quite some time, so patience was called upon to see me through the greenish color of brass.  Thank goodness for highlights that make that brass shine!
