Once Upon A Rose still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Once Upon A Rose still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I have seen many paintings of gift boxes and love them all. I decided that I wanted to paint one myself so I chose now to do it. Roses are also a challenge for me and with much practice I hope to get better at them. I always have trouble with coffee cups, keeping the shape right and yes those ellipses. Clear glass is in a league of its own so as you can see this painting was filled with challenges. I loved them all and am pretty pleased with the overall outcome. 20x16 oil still life on canvas panel.

Cackle Berry still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan

Cackle Berry still life painting by Alabama Artist Angela Sullivan
I found this little creamer and knew that it was just calling me to paint it. I have always loved painting eggs but to be honest have quite failed at painting them. I figured a cut one with the yellow showing might be an easy subject and am quite happy with how it turned out. And then the berry...
