Peach, Plate and Gargoyle

8"X10" Oil on canvas.

My muse has eluded me recently. I have lots of excuses for not painting but none of them really stand up to scrutiny.

I made a new shadow box today, so I will see if I can use it for some still lifes and try to get my painting muscles back into shape.

Of course more than half the battle is just choosing something to paint. I just grabbed the first three things that came to hand. A little odd, and fairly challenging. Peaches are one of the hardest fruits to paint, in my opinion, but so delicious.
