Deli Delight




Deli Delight


8x6in oil on canvas panel  $125.

I love my cold cuts with red onions and Dijon Mustard.  I was making a
really yummy sandwich when  I looked up and all of a sudden
I saw the set up on the counter as a painting... and yes,
the sandwich was forgotten.

  1. I love this still life. It is less fractured than I expect from you, but I still love it. The use of gray in the background really make those colors "pop". Well done.

    1. Yes - it is not fractured because I whipped it out quickly.
      Thanks for being kind, Roger. Love the colors in your beautiful "blue" piece.

  2. A still life too nice and original to surrender to the sandwich!
    You did very well to paint BEFORE!
    After that, I hope you will be granted the sandwich!
    You are Great, Julie!

  4. Serendipity is a great friend! It's great to have the time to stop and paint when such a thing occurs. Great job!

  6. This one brings a big smile to me, Julie. It's something I might find in my family's kitchen - good things happening!
