Another one from my last show. This one had been on my "to paint" list for a long long time. It took a while to decide just how I wanted it to be, particularly that tricky cliffside. But I'm really happy with the results.
Kids are miraculously napping at the same time, giving me time time for a quick post. This was one of my favorites from my last show, glad to finally share it with you now! It's also one of Lily's favorite spots to explore with her daddy.
The bright colors of fruits are always so fun to paint. If you haven't tried it you should! I start by marking in the shadow areas, working towards the brightest ones. It's fun to look for unique shapes created by the curves.
Still on maternity leave over here. Our new little dude is awake pretty much all the time, which means there's no time for me to paint. But I still have a dozen or so new paintings that I finished before he was born. So for the next couple weeks I'll be sharing those with you! And they'll be available to purchase in my Etsy shop too!
For those of you who are local, I have a show going up this Sunday (Dec 13). I will have pretty much every one of my available paintings displayed, and I've been painting like crazy to get them ready (and enlisting a very helpful husband to assist in all the framing!).
The show will be up at Zookers, 5404 Carpinteria Avenue, Carpinteria, CA 93013, from December 13th through February 13th.
Oil on canvas, 18x24 inches
And now even more exciting news, look who decided to show up a week before his due date?

Hi! I'm Sharon Schock, an artist living and working in Carpinteria, California. In 2009 I started a daily painting project where I complete one small painting each day. These paintings will be up for auction or available in my etsy shop soon after they're posted here. To be the first to know about each new posting enter your email at the top of the page.
