I'm still here--painting in progress

Oil on canvas panel, 6x6--commission in progress
Hello, there! I've been a busy bee this last week and have neglected to post. Sorry! Here is the ivory soap painting in progress. I still need to touch up the cloth, tiles, and soapdish before adding bubbles and bling. I'm also working on a large 20x20 oyster and lemon painting (complete with cocktail sauce!!!). I'll post a photo of that piece--in progress--tomorrow.

Oyster with Lemon

Oil on Canvas Panel, 6x6--SOLD
We are now the proud owners of a gallon of freshly shucked oysters from the Gulf of Mexico. Needless to say, I've been snacking on them throughout the day (covered in horseradish). Slurp, slurp!
