"Teacup #10"

"Teacup #10", oil on panel, 6x6 inches
 by Bobbi Dunlop

 This is the lovely sugar bowl from my paternal Grandmother's collection, handed down and eventually passed along to me by my mother. While it's not technically a teacup, I've chosen to include it in this series.  This delicate sugar bowl, as well as the teacup, have appeared several times over the years in my paintings.

Sadly, I never knew my grandmother as she passed away a few years before I was born. I am told that she was remarkably artistic and an accomplished photographer and business woman, very much ahead of her time.  I am so proud to share her name.

Whenever I paint these treasured cups, I think of her.

Painted from life, this painting is unframed and varnished for longevity.

"Ripe and Reddy"

"Ripe and Reddy"
oil n panel, 4.25 x 8 inches by Bobbi Dunlop

Sitting on my kitchen counter, these beautiful little nectarines were just ripe for a painting!  What I love most about painting from life is that even the most simple and ordinary of subjects are transformed into something magnificent when sculpted in paint.

These small paintings make lovely groupings and are perfect for gift giving - weddings/showers, birthdays  -  and perhaps for the special people on your Christmas list.

Thanks for visiting!
