A Couple of Hotties

I used a touch of viridian in my mix for the ground that really made it luminous.  This is one of those paintings that you really have to see in person.

Ginger in a Ginger Jar

This variegated shell ginger grows in my yard.  The leaves will go brown if there is a frost, so I wanted to paint it while it is still in its glory.  I love the graphic patterns on the leaves.  Each one is different.  I also love how the bright greens complement the vivid orange pot.

My dotted cereal bowl reminded me of confetti and inspired this fun still life.
