Donkey Treats

Donkey Treats
11x14 Oil on Hardboard
  I was bumping about the house looking for stuff to paint for a still life.   I came across Eeyore and a few other stuffed critters.  Since he is my favorite I had to give him the honor.   Joe ate the apple though.. and the grapes never made it to the party.  Gotta love grapes.  ;)

Needless to say I'm thrilled how he turned out.  I've been doing more still life because the colors and values in shadow are much more defined.  It really helps because there are more choices on which way to go with hues, etc.  Much faster too!  

There are more paintings of my still lifes on my blog. I have not been posting them to Facebook as of late.  Life has been busy.   But if your interested in a look see.  Follow this link to the Home Page and scroll down.
