This was a very quickly painted study-- the goal being a sort of short hand notation in paint of the pecan. I wanted to get the thing down quickly with minimal blending or any extra "fiddling".

Green Grapes Daily Oil Painting


I knew I would get around to painting more grapes eventually (although this time, obviously ones of the green variety). Grapes are fun-- one of my favorite types of fruit to paint.

Eggplant Daily Oil Painting


5" x 7" (15.3cm x 10.2cm)
Oil on panel

I can't remember ever eating eggplant, but I picked this one up while hunting for things to paint in the produce section. I thought it would be interesting to paint, and it was. By placing it in a cool grey environment, I wanted to contrast the dark violet undertones of the eggplant with the blue greys of its surroundings.

Rose Daily Oil Painting by Jeff Ward


The rose is an interesting thing to paint, even from a distance like in this case. I think I'll be painting one every now and then... maybe a closeup next time.

Peeps Daily Oil Painting

4" x 4" (15.3cm x 10.2cm)
Oil on canvas panel
I had never heard of Peeps until my wife brought some home. I have to say, they are pretty tasty (this from someone who likes twinkies, of course). Also, it's fun to pretend you're Ozzy Osbourne and bite their heads off... perverse maybe, but it somehow enhances the dining experience.
