4"x4"x1", oil on cradled hardboard

Well, I bet you weren't expecting to see me around here so soon!!
Yes! I got a painting done today! I thought about it last night and knew I had to paint today. I saw this nail polish while running errands and knew it was going to be my model today! I just knew it! :)
As you can see in the pictures, I am using a 1″ cradled hardboard panel. It’s really nice and won’t even need to be framed. I think this is the way I’m going with my paintings in the future.
My husband keeps telling me I should sometimes sell the item that I paint along with my painting. What do you think of that? Want to buy an original painting with a bottle of nail polish?

On Wednesdays I find one of my older paintings and list it on eBay at a starting bid of $1. Since I missed a few weeks I have 4 paintings at auction. AND I just think they all look really cute together. You can check them out here.
I'm going to be focusing on quilting/sewing for the remainder of the summer. You can see what I'm up to over here. I've also started doing a little watercolor illustration and you can check that out here.
I'm trying to keep this blog dedicated to still life painting. I'll be back here for One Dollar Wednesday and when the urge to paint with oil strikes me again.
