12x12x1.5 oil on gallery wrapped canvas. And once more I had to do it. Just one more little cow but those brush strokes are rich and juicy and those eyes say take me home.

Still Life painting Sparkle Rosie by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life painting Sparkle Rosie by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
Actually I got the name for this one after a cat. My nephews little girl named her cat Sparkle Rosie, not sparkle or Rosie but Sparkle Rosie and you better not shorten it. She dragged
that cat around everywhere. Oh to be loved like that. The sparkle of this vase made me think of it. The open pear was another gift from my daughter who searches for the strangest things because she knows that I love them. 20x16x1.5 oil on gallery wrapped canvas.

Still Life Painting If That Isn't Love by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life Painting If That Isn't Love by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life painting Butterfly Kisses by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
24x18x1.5 oil on gallery wrapped canvas. My sister in law bought me this pitcher at the apple festival in Ellijay, Ga a couple of years ago. It actually has a candle in it. I like the looseness of the roses in the distance. The apple and orange were added for balance of course.

Still Life Painting Threes Company by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Still Life Painting Threes Company by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I usually paint pretty exclusively with RGH artist oil paints but decided to change for a bit so I ordered a set of artist grade Gamblin oils. I don't know if I like them or not. The consistency is so different. I wish I could explain it but the Gamblin seemed to smear and The Cad Red Light just did not seem to mix as bright as with RGH. I am gonna continue to try them because yep! I have a whole set. Maybe it is just me and my not being used to them. I will let you know...
