Fruit and feline

Three cherries in oil...and a backlit kitten. His name is Lynx, but he mostly goes by Lynxmuffin.

More art on my website:

Beautifully painted cherries, Jala, and Lynx is really cute, too.

Jala, beautiful cherry study! ours are ripe and ready here in Va. Lynxmuffin is precious and this photo should become a painting.
guess the weather is better now?

Hola Jala,
tuve la fortuna de encontrar tu blog, totalmente disfrutable y tus abstractos me parecen muy buenos. Si bien yo pinto acuarelas, tus oleos me atraen muchísimo, asi que desde ya sigo tu blog

love the cherries. i'm guessing you use artificial lights for your still life? i do as well because you get stronger shadows and it's more stable. have you ever tried those daylight simulation bulbs?

cherries are excellent. i love the background colour in the highlights too, it just makes the whole painting so balanced. r.

Brian - Thanks!

Cathyann - The weather finally normalized. I like your new pic! You can paint him if you like...

Fernando - Muchas gracias. He visitado tu sitio tambie'n y he puesto tu enlace en mi blog. !Hasta pronto!

Hi Stephen - I use artificial light for two reasons: my studio has windows and skylights all over the place, so I can't achieve a north-light-only situation. The other reason is that I am a night owl and usually prefer to paint late at night. I do use the daylight-simulation bulbs.

Rahina - Thanks for noticing!

Thank you, Liz.
