Aubergine

Aubergine
Oil on canvas board,5"x7"
SOLD
In retrospect I think I would have painted this aubergine at more of an angle.I have painted a second one which is a bit more lively but it fell face down when I was trying to take a picture outside.Its a case of  toast always falling buttered side down!! Anyway, the painting looks perfectly fine , I will take a photo more carefully tomorrow,hopefully it will be less windy.

Isolation

Isolation
Oil on canvas board,12"x10"
Available,please contact me on
azraiqbal2000@hotmail.com
Painting is isolation by choice.Last weeks challenge on DPW was to paint a feeling and I had this composition in mind to paint only I left it till today to finish it! I don't usually put negative feelings into my work,well not deliberately any way.This  one had to come out in some way.Most of the time I am quite happy with painting on my own and yet there are times I crave company of my closest friends ,but  because I've kept everyone at a distance they are not always available for a heart to heart.Thats when the feelings of isolation take hold.

If it were not for my artist friends in blogland it would be so much harder to continue.

The time between seeing something I want to paint and actually getting on with it ,is getting shorter.Before I started blogging years went by without picking up a brush,now its a matter of hours between each painting.I put this down to a number of inspiring events ,but  most of all blogging and the many, wonderful, talented artists that take the time to leave encouraging comments.

Persimmons in a Dish
Oil on canvas board,5"x7"
SOLD

Do my artist friends have tired eyes syndrome?? I find myself looking at everything with a view to paint and by the end of the day my eyes are so tired!! I think maybe thats why after a few weeks of regular painting I don't have a choice but to give my eyes a rest to see anew.
