Christmas painting clementines and cranberries

Day 16: Christmas clementines and cranberries

Clementines and cranberries, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Original painting available on Etsy. A still life containing pine branches is automatically going to have a Christmas theme, isn’t it? This one started out as just clementines and branches, but as I was painting I decided it needed a small splash […]

Day 14: juicy pomegranate

Open pomegranate, 20 x 20 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. [SOLD] Pomegranates are one of my favorite fruits, both to eat and to look at. Turns out they’re also fun to paint. If you’ll be in Munich on December 4th, please plan to stop by the Open Studio I will be hosting that […]

Cherries, summer, and Cy Twombly

Cherries, 15 x 15 cm, oil on canvas, ©2011 Julie Galante. Buy now This little daily painting was very hard to photograph. It’s so dark, and a lot of its interestingness comes from the three-dimensionality of the paint. For the past few weeks my still lifes have been less about representing the object and more […]

Daily Painting: bananas and figs

24 x 18 cm, oil on canvas. The figs are almost hiding out in the purple background, but there they are.

tomatoes and blueberries

Tomatoes and blueberries, together at last

20 x 20 cm, oil on canvas. [SOLD] When I came back to this painting today, I expected it to need more work, but looking at it with fresh eyes I decided I liked its messiness. So I’m leaving it alone, and devouring the subjects for lunch.

Daily paintings: Raiding the kitchen

Nectarines [SOLD] This week I have been finding inspiration in the produce I bring home from the market. I love the vibrant colors of fruits and veggies, which make me want to paint with colors straight out of the tube. Tomatoes on the vine [SOLD] These are all 15 x 15 cm (about 6 x […]

Apples and their reflections

Apples and their reflections

30 x 45 cm, oil on canvas, 1992. In high school I took two years of AP Art. One year my theme was portraits, and the other year it was fruit. I can’t remember exactly why I chose fruit. Probably as much for its ease as anything. You don’t need much space to set up […]
