Today's challenge is this basket of vegetables. The green peppers a bit past it's prime, but the yellow pepper and tomatoes are at the peak of ripeness. The biggest challenge is some of the detailing in the basket. Sometimes there is a style war going on inside me. I love realistic paintings but I don't want to be just a camera, I want to evoke emotions with my paintings, even with the simplest subjects.
I'm an fine art artist in Raleigh, North Carolina. I need a paintbrush in my hand to feel complete and I invite you to follow me on my art journey. Everyday brings new ideas and projects... there simply is not enough time... On December 1, 2012, I joined the community of artists who paint a painting each and every day. I haven't been able to keep up with the daily painting, but I'm trying hard to keep my paintbrushes busy.
