I know I post alot of things I attempt to draw and paint and I often hear that my work is dark etc. Well not today, the other day I had opened a
thread in the music forum involving a metal band Motograter and I was saying that sometimes what I listen too affects what I desire to paint. Well
lately I have been listening to alot of classical and classical electronica, then out of no where yesterday morning after I applied for a job I
decided I wanted to practice oil painting some more and started painting peaches, I don't know why but maybe the music does really have some kind of
power to move and inspire me in ways I don't understand, I believe that this type of music without sung words purely instrumental does inspire me and
helps my focus. So today I am going to try and bring these peaches to their full potential at least to the best of my abilities (however limited they

The smell of fresh cut peaches hits me in the face when I look at this. I am re-doing my kitchen in a pale, cream/champagne yellow, close to the
yellow you painted around the peach pit area...I would hang this in my kitchen.
I believe that food as a subject is under-rated. You do nice fruit. Fruit makes me happy and peaceful.
By the time I am finished with this, I hope they look wet and shiny. right now things are a little bit dull but this is going to change. I like doing
this so far so maybe I will do hot peppers next, they can have beautiful curves and deep color and value, I am not a painter by any sense of the word
and am still learning how so if things are a little off or wonky please point them out I would be much obliged, and thank you for stopping by.
Me either, thats why I post though so people can tell me what they think and if it sucks maybe I can figure out how to fix it. Post your water colors,
Im always here to have a look-see at my peers work, when I do it gives me insight into them and myself.
Trust me it is neither a hobby or a vocation, its something else entirely whether you think you do it as a hobby or a vocation. It is something you
can do from the inside on out, you are a creator of things for the mind and soul.
Have you ever tried acrylic or any other paint medium aside from oil? Or do you just prefer oil painting?
I kind of paint in everything. I am not a painter though I just recently started teaching myself how to paint, I am back and forth between everything
I think this was my first painting I ever
seriously attempted like back in the 90s or early 2000's. Then I didn't really do any painting until maybe a year ago or less.
