Wall Nuts

8" X 8" oil on linen

An artist friend of mine handed me these walnuts and said "I want to see how you paint them".  So here you go Marilyn, thanks for the inspiration...always!
The title is a result of spending too much time alone in my studio.  :)

  7. A talented painter can take any subject and do something wonderful with it as did you! Bravo. A creative fun spirit can add a title and a bit of sass and make it a fun blog post as did you.
    Dana you are the best!

  8. I always like when an artist takes a simple subject and really paints it well, as you did on this one. Nice range of browns and greens.
