View Full Version : Loads of vegetables...catching up

05-02-2010, 06:06 PM
We are in the middle of selling our house and moving to an acreage so I haven't had a lot of time to post anything. Here are a few quick ones that I've painted in between packing boxes :rolleyes:

"Peppers" 8x10in. each. Painted from my own set-ups.

"Eggplant" 9x12in

And a painting I just finished for Mother's Day :)

"Magnolia" 9x12 in.

This will probably be it for painting for the next couple of months until I get back on line and get my new studio set up.

Your mother will love that painting - good for you!

Beautiful work Lillian,

Oh now I am impressed, between packing yet, I generally nap! :D

They're wonderful and I especially like the Eggplant, fantastic highlights but the magnolia a beauty, well heck they're all grand but then they always are..

Good luck with the move.

Thank you so much Ruthie, Chris, cadub, lexycat, Michelle, Ken and Elaine for the kind comments and well wishes on the move.

I started packing up my art books and paints and canvases today and am already feeling a bit of separation anxiety, LOL.

Michelle, I will definately show you my new studio sometime next month when I get it set up.

Thanks again!

Love all of them, so luscious and great realism as always. My fav is the eggplant, it just glows!

You really captured the volume in these vegetables they look good enough to eat. Awesome.

:clap: The Magnolia bloom is outstanding .... and the veggies would be a wonderful series in your new kitchen or diningroom. Anyone who thinks that acrylics can't be blended should look at these.:clap:

Your usual high standard even on quickies! Lillian, you're amazing!

Are you moving far?

Can't understand how you could do these whilst in the throes of packing boxes, emptying cupboards etc :eek: ...... hope the artistic inactivity is very short!!! :D Happy moving :wave:

Thank you Nithya!

Teresa, thank you!

Linda, thank you so much! I actually find that some canvasses are way easier to blend on then others. I like ones were the paint sinks in a bit instead of just laying on top. Depends on the gesso I guess :confused: I don't use any mediums at all, just paint and water.

Maureen, We are moving to a small community about 15 min. from where we are now. It is more of a county setting with cows and horses and farmland. So it will be a bit of a change for us. My husband is excited about buying a tractor :rolleyes: I'm excited about having a larger studio and even room for a gallery :thumbsup: Thank you for the comments and I hope I can start painting again soon after moving in. :)

fabulous Lillian, a real treat to view. All the best with your new venture!

Thank you so much Chammi! :)

Thank you for the kind words Lulu! We've been in this (our first home) for over 24 years so I'm leaving with a bit of sadness also. So many memories :heart:

Thanks again, I appreciate it!
