The Orange Peelers, 1.5’x5′, mixed media on canvas, 2008
A Favorite topic of mine. The ‘Orange Peeler’ Factory. This idea came about when I handed Scarlett a bowl of tiny little oranges and she spent 2o minutes peeling them. In a two year old’s world this is a very long time. Anyway, that was the inspiration and then I just let my imagination fly!
I finally finished this canvas of Scarlett peeling oranges! I have been putting it off for a long time but I’m done now and I am really happy with it. As you may know, this is not the first time I have painted this subject, but this is the first time I have painted multiple Scarletts. God knows that one of her is plenty! I can’t imagine dealing with six of her. She found the idea quite hilarious, pointing at each one individually and yelling “Scarlett!”.
This painting is a 11.5″x47″ mixed media painting on a 1.5″ profile canvas.
I did this 8″x10″ mixed media painting today. It is of Scarlett at the piano. She really takes her playing quite seriously. My five year also takes Scarlett’s playing quite seriously. When Scarlett plays, it SERIOUSLY bugs her!
This is Scarlett looking less like a baby and more like a girl with attitude!
This is an original mixed media ACEO on 100% rag paper.
This is a painting that I just completed of Scarlett sitting at the dining room table. She is so still and at peace, not at all like her normal two year old self. There was just a beautiful stillness at that moment that I wanted to try to capture.
