Homemade Preserves

Acrylic polymer emulsion on gessoed hardboard, 14 x 18''
#85, 2005 - private collection
The imagery for this painting was inspired during an escape week-end in Nova Scotia during the fall of 2004. I had kindly ask a country store owner in Mahone Bay, if I could photograph some of their homemade preserves on the window sill where a diffuse light became the perfect stage.
I am currently working on painting number 9 for my fall solo show at Handworks Gallery.


  1. What a painting. Beautiful and realistic. Good luck with your show!

  2. Incredible!! always. Thanks for the comments on my blog Alvin, great to hear from you. It prompted me to click over and see what you are up to and my gosh, you are knocking them out of the park. Love it. Good luck with your fall show, I'm sure it will be a sell out.
    All the best,

  3. Wow, wow, wow...absolutely amazing.

  4. Alvin!

    Wow, this is ridiculously good!

    Very photorealistic even down to the handwritten labels.

    Just great!
