Old News is Still Good News

Old news is still good news. I’ve not done so hot in keeping up with the blog here…but I’ll try harder. Here are some recent daily paintings that I have completed within the past few months.

"Sunflower" by Elaine Brady Smith, 6" x 6" oil on panel.

“Sunflower” by Elaine Brady Smith, 6″ x 6″ oil on panel.

I labored a bit long over this sunflower, especially for it’s small size, but I am very happy with the way it turned out. The two tomato paintings below are dedicated to my dear cousin Jane.  Jane gave me a bunch of heritage seedlings for my garden this past spring. It was great fun, because although she had them carefully marked, I just planted them in somewhat of a random order.  It turned into a “mystery garden” as the tomatoes and peppers grew and I waited to see what would pop out on each plant. It was especially exciting when the chocolate peppers appeared. Now if they only tasted like chocolate…that would have been the real surprise.  I highly recommend this form of gardening. The suspense is thrilling!!! None the less, a few of the ripe tomatoes served as models for my still life daily paintings.
