9 x 12 inch pastel "Red Onions"

This is another little painting in my vegetable series. I love the colors of these onions, that is proabably what compelled my to paint them. All of these paintings are going to be put in a stainless steel frame that I think would look great in a modern kitchen (specifically mine, unless I have a buyer!) Again this is done on LaCarte pastel paper.

5 x 7 inch pastel "artichoke"

This small painting is another in the vegetable series. This one was very difficult for me and I though it would be so simple! This small size is a real challenge to work with even for someone with small hands like me. Again this is done on LaCarte paper. I think I will use the sudedboard for my next one. Perhaps some oranges? Stay tuned.

5 x 7 inch pastel "Peppers"

I am beginning to paint a small series on fruts and vegetables and this is one of them. I am really enjoying using the LaCarte pastel card for these still lifes. It really works well and holds lots of pastel. Although this is small it still managed to take me around 3 1/2 hours to complete, almost like a large one.
