Lemon Cucumbers

Oil on Canvas Panel, 9x12 in.
I found these lemon cucumbers at the Farmer's Market and thought they would be fun to paint.  The red bowl is from the 99 Cent store--it's become one of my favorite still life props.

Oil on gessoboard, 8x8 in.

I've been taking a lot of yoga classes lately and I've noticed that since practicing yoga I look for more symmetry, balance, and quiet in my paintings than I used to.  The challenge is to include some dynamic element in the painting so that it doesn't become too balanced, static and boring.  I'm still working on that!
