Up on Etsy - Cherry Turnover Daily Acrylic Painting

"Cherry Turnover," acrylic on panel, 5" x 7"/$59.

Visit my Etsy store to buy.

I picked up a couple of these turnovers at our local Wegman's grocery store. I feel very lucky that we moved from Florida, with the country's number 1 grocery store (Publix) to Syracuse with the country's number 2. I do bake occasionally myself, but there are some things, like this turnover, that are just beyond me. I'm lucky to have such a great bakery nearby to pick up my food painting models!

EBay Auction Starting - Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups Daily Trompe L'Oeil Acrylic Painting

"In Case of Chocolate Emergency 7," acrylic on panel, 8" x 8".

I had a couple of breakthroughs with this piece. First, I've been transitioning from oil to acrylic and been researching some painting techniques, so I've adjusted my approach just slightly, giving me a smoother finish to my paint and a look that is closer to resembling oil (but without my cats' fur drying in it). Second, I've finally figured out how to do a "custom White Balance" on my camera, so hopefully my photos will be more accurate from here on. I was able to retain the bright neon-like orange in the photo, which I've struggled with in the past, and I actually saved a ton of time by not having to edit much in Photoshop. So it's a good week so far!

Up on eBay - Baseball Daily Acrylic Painting

"Foul Ball," acrylic on panel, 5" x 5".

As I've mentioned before, my husband and I attended as many baseball Spring Training games as we could while living in Florida. Since this is our first March up north, we try to make a once-a-week date to watch a Yankees Spring Training game. We collected lots of memorabilia throughout the years, including this ball, which he got from his grandfather. Thanks for looking!

Up on Etsy - Soft Pretzel Daily Acrylic Realism Painting

"Soft Pretzel," acrylic on panel, 5" x 5"/$69

Buy now on Etsy.

When we lived in Florida, my husband and I would attend as many baseball Spring Training games as we could. This is our first March in the north, so to keep the tradition as alive as we can, we make a once-a-week date to watch a Yankees spring training game on TV, and I cook hot dogs (veggie dogs for me!) and soft pretzels. While it's not quite the same, we still very much enjoy it, and I was able to buy a box of 25 frozen soft pretzels for the same cost as one pretzel at the stadium!

EBay Auction Starting - Old Fashioned Coca Cola Bottles Daily Acrylic Painting

"Old Fashioned Coca-Cola Bottles," acrylic on panel, 7" x 5".

I love the retro-style soda bottles I've been seeing in stores, so I thought I'd pick some up to paint. I did something a little different for this piece in that I muted the colors a bit, as sort of a throwback to the old Coca-Cola ads from decades past.
