Snail Mail still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

 Snail Mail still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I am loving painting from actual still life set ups. The little snail was given to me by my daughter. It is actually a salt shaker. It has a frog for the pepper shaker but I decided to leave it out for now. Again I added the cherries to bring the viewers eye back into the painting. 14x11 Oil on canvas panel. I purchased these panels from Hobby Lobby. They are triple primed and took oil quite well. I am pretty pleased with how they worked up. Hope you like this one.

Big Sister Still Life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan


Big Sister Still Life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
Showing you my mistakes makes me feel very wide open so here goes. As you know I paint alla prima for the most part. I painted the top picture and was gonna be done. In fact I thought I was done but I knew I was not happy with the spout on the teapot even though it did protrude out as painted but it just looked odd. I left it over night thinking maybe no one would notice especially since I had added that luscious cherry. Anyway, I got home from work today and decided to add the second teddy bear. ( I made the larger bear out of floral fabric). I am much happier with the end result. 14x11 oil on canvas panel. (I also painted the ceramic teapot).

Painting today was so much fun. It was kinda like visiting an old friend. I got that comfortable familiar warm feeling just like sitting on the front porch with a cool glass of sweet tea...with lemon of course.

I love painting cups and paintings of cups but to me they are very hard to paint and keep their fragile appeal. I am pretty pleased with this one and of course pears are both fun and more manageable.
