These are a Few of my Favourite Things
(16" x 16", oil on canvas)

Not all paintings work out. After a few days of struggling with an idea that simply wouldn't gel, I pulled out a few of my favourite things, and just like the song, things start to look up.

This red jug has starred in many successful paintings, and is a joy to paint. While the colour is wonderful, I think it's appeal has more to do with shape and proportion. Add some colourful fruit and a bowl in a complementary shape and I have a can't-fail composition.
