Shining Leaves  oil 8x6
 click to buy

The gingkos in my neighborhood turn a beautiful golden color in the fall.  I collect them, put them in a jar with glycerine and stick them in the fridge.  During the year I pull them out and play with them until I hit on a still life setting I want to paint. Again, this is a shallow stage to take advantage of the shadows on the wall.  I also love painting white, you get so many great subtle colors in the reflections and shadows.
