Single Garlic Flower

7 x 5 inches, oil on panel

Couldn't get on the computer yesterday--- this is the garlic flower I finished recently.  My model had dried up so I had to finish from memory.  Again, photographing these dark backgrounds is a real challenge.  When I get a chance, I'll try to get a better photo.  I'm working the Cherrywood Art Fair this weekend so I haven't been able to paint. Hopefully tomorrow....


  1. Dramatic background. You said it's a challenge to photograph. Is the color the same in person?

  2. The color is more maroon than black. Toward the edges it does get very dark. I think the photo (on my screen) looks mostly black.
