Painting a day: Camembert
Oil on masonite, 4 x 8 Inches

It isn't very often that I'm tempted to hang on to one of my own paintings, but I was with this one. It feels like a lot of things just came together for it. Although it is a simple subject, there were certainly enough technical challenges to keep me engaged; lettering can be rough! I'm also really fond of compositions that are illuminated from the side. Every time I do a painting lit that way, I wonder why I don't do ALL of my paintings lit that way.

And of course, I love Camembert... but who doesn't?
