"Pears in Light" --- Sold

I want this painting to show the difference between painting the objects and painting the light. Don't you think it worked?

"Tomato and Onions" --- Sold

I have painted many fruit, but now I am trying more on painting vegetables. As eye-candies, they are equally sweet.

We have cantaloupes growing in our yard, but they could not get big some how. I don’t know how well they taste, but they are certainly make good still-life subjects. This painting will be shown at Galerie Kornye West at Fort Worth, TX. The URL is:

Onion at Center --- Sold

I haven't done many paintings with onions, but I find that I really like the texture of it. It has a different tast.

"Bird Feed" --- Sold

You might wonder what the white object is at the front. It is a bird feed, which is used to hold a small amount of food for birds in a cage. I got it from my mother-in-law. It works so well for still life compositions.

"Red Rose" --- Sold

We planted rose bushes in the spring, but didn’t realize they were too close to the AC compressor. The Texas summer comes. The high temperature plus more heat from the AC are all dumped on the plant. But to my surprise, they grew well and bloomed. The flowers are so beautiful. I must paint them.

"Lonely" --- Sold

For a while, I put a lot of vibrant colors on my paintings, but I am testing more subtle colors lately. After having too much Texas BBQ, I want to have some green tea.

"A Pear & Grapes" --- Sold

I borrowed this composition from David Leffel. He is one of my favorite still-life artists. I took his workshop three times and really learned a lot.
