Crackers and Jam 5x7 (in progress)

my set up...
in progress...
just about finished....

This is one of my favorite snacks. The jelly always looks so pretty on the crackers, I thought I'd like to paint a picture of it. It was getting late in the afternoon, so I thought I'd take some pictures of my subject, choose a picture I liked, and paint from that some other time. So, I took a bunch of pictures,sat at the computer trying to decide on one, and couldn't figure out which picture to use.... so, I wound up just painting from the set up itself like I usually do. I had a nice time painting even tho I prefer painting during the day when the light is better. I positioned a couple of lights toward my easel and that seemed to help. I might still work on the painting tomorrow in the day light.
The finished painting is available on ebay, Click here


  1. The crackers, the tea cup, the measuring cup, they are all really great. Keep up the good work and market. Your work is way too good to be selling at these prices.

  2. Love the jelly. It's gushing right off the painting.

  3. I just found this blog, your work is beautiful!
