I enjoyed painting this one, and eating the chips afterward :). I have been doing a lot of plein air lately, and I caught myself thinking "get the shapes down quick, or the light will change". Then I realized my light source is a bulb that is gonna stay put and not move across the sky. I've been thinking about doing a painting with this composition for a few weeks now, and finally found the time and energy to sit down and paint it.


Although I've been enjoying myself immensely painting landscapes outdoors this summer, I must admit that I am a lot more comfortable painting still lifes. Plus, you can eat them!


  1. Oh, you are such a crazily obsessed artist, Roy! I think you're on your way to lots of awards and solo shows.

    1. Thanks Jolyn, awards and solo shows would be awesome, but right now I'm just happy to be painting. :)
