Very Very Berry

A Very Very Berry designs were inspired by the Forest Fruits jam label order that I posted below.
It was an instant desire to bring some of my painted berries together; than more then better, creating one juicy watercolor still life.
It was easy to find good "models" for these artworks. 
Mouth watering Beauties!
Sweet, fresh, and mm tasty!!

Artwork On The Cover

The Thanksgiving holidays are not even started, and we are already exposed to Christmas holiday themes in the stores, TV commercials and radio. Feels that it is a little earlier than ever. 
Yet for some venues it is the right timing to think about holidays fast approach.

Among them are some artists and publishers.

I am glad to announce that one of my Christmas paintings, the Pink Poinsettia, was selected for December cover of The Showcase magazine. Editors of the magazine chose this artwork appreciating a realistic approach combined with continuous decorative floral pattern so well suited for the holiday’s spirit. 

Established in 1996, The Showcase offers the community a professional magazine with informative columns, community news, community calendars, and articles.

Farmers Market Treasures Jam Relish and Marmalade Labels Project

What Color Are The Vitamins?!

My Jam, Relish, and Marmalade Gallery is growing. Several new paintings and designs were born in the last month. And with enough water and plenty of colors on my palette, it keeps growing as if I opened a "Farmers Market" in my studio. 

I've looked at my previous and new paintings of vegetables, berries and fruits and combined them into a color themes.
The above one calls for some cool colors. This group is for Blue and Black Vitamins, and it contains blueberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, and grape paintings.

The next bunch is so so red. The mixture of cranberries, raspberries, redcurrant, strawberries and even rhubarb would water any mouth:

Unusual combination of berries, fruit, veggies, and even herbs is in my Green collection. Gooseberries, cucumbers, green apple and mint leaves are here in Green Vitamins collage:

All shades of yellow and orange are in this Citrus Quartet, a Vitamin C in all its glory. It contains ruby red grapefruit, oranges, and lemons:

And not so well coming together in one dish, but oh so well came together by color into a collection of Purple fruits, berries, and vegetables.
It contains plums, eggplant, purple onion, and freshly picked blackberries that certainly have a purple tint to them:

It was fun to combine so many different creation of mine into a colored vitamins series.
Thanks to my Jam Labels project, which allowed me to generate so many different designs!
