Here is a garlic bulb that I lit a little differently based on how I used to light small sculptures when I was photographer for the Orange Coast College Art Gallery. It adds a bit of drama. I also used a polarizer on the camera to get rid of the flare and reflective highlights I was having problems with in my previous photos. Unfortunately, the filter allows for a sort of hyper texture to dominate the image. I'll need to experiment some more. Also, this will be the last of my paintings for about a week, because I'll be tearing down my studio starting tonight to prepare for getting a new laminate floor to replace the truly awful, filthy old carpet that I have now. I can't wait. So bye till next Tuesday.

OK, OK, I just can't stay away from the fake pear. I thought I liked this one the best, and now I know that I don't. So, looking forward to a real pear just to see if that's the problem, or I just have issues with pears. Actually, I like looking at them way more than I like eating them, which isn't at all. Unless they're baked. By my Mom.

I had to get away from the yellow pear again. I've always loved the beautiful variations of color in these kind of onions, so there will be more of these in future. Since starting this project I see paintings everywhere: in all my food, my stuff. I'll never run out of things to paint.
