Starbursts and Jellybeans

I wanted to paint some jellybeans and had these 4 left at the bottom of my candy jar and there were some starbursts too, so I decided to add them. At first I thought that the color combination was off, but then it grew on me. I like the reflections on the plate.
Still listening to the Fall of Giants.

Tropical Fruit

Star fruit always make me think about my brother who worked in a produce store as a teenager and introduced my family to its tart flavor. Hey Charlie.

Fall is very exciting in Florida! O.k. not very exciting, more like something to be endured, kind a like February and March in New York. We're currently happy the temperature has dropped into the 80's. Ooo it's only gonna be 86 today. Perhaps I'll wear my fur lined boots today. On the bright side, we do have acorns and it's almost over. Soon it will be paradise for about 6 months and I'll remember why I moved here. Maybe...

A Pair of Pears

How can you tell if the still life is finished? Easy, just knock it over and if the pears transform into mush on the carpet, it's done!
I'm now listening to Fall of Giants by Follett. Wonderful.


This was meant to be a first pass, but for now, I like it the way it is.
