I almost never paint on a canvas surface anymore–I've really gotten addicted the smooth surface of a panel. But I had these canvas-covered panels sitting around, and I decided to go back to them for some still life paintings. I was surprised by how much I liked it–there's something about the way the paint settles into canvas that gives the color a real depth you don't get on a panel. So–maybe I'll do more of that.
There are actually three of these little 6 x 8 paintings of persimmon and eggplant. I really liked these colors, so I had a lengthy photo session with them one afternoon. More to come!
