This is a little cat ornament that I have had for years. I like the way the background looks against the dark chocolate brown of the ornament. To me it looks warm and inviting rather than cold and hard but maybe that's just me.

Got my groove back today! What a difference one day makes. Yesterday I didn't want to paint at all. Today I not only finished this painting but I started 2 others.
I like this painting mostly because it is a bowl of Rainer cherries - my absolute favorite fruit that is only available here for 2 weeks in August.

Finally had to give up on this one. I just couldn't get the color of the oranges right. It seems like all my yellows tend to lean towards the cool side rather than being warm yellows. Maybe that is just an excuse - I don't really know. All I do know is that I couldn't achieve the bright orangy/yellow of the highlight that would have really made the shadows pop.
