Pomegranate

Pomegranate
9 of 30
Oil 14" x 11"
$295.00 + $10. s/h

One of my goals this year is to paint more large pieces.  I'm not sure if 14" x 11" counts as large, but, it's not small.  So, I think it's ok.  Another goal is to finish paintings.  I started this previously and only got the pomegranates finished, they don't last.  So I just finished the rest.

Over the holidays my camera broke.  I've had the camera for many years and loved it.  I took it into a camera store to see about getting it fixed.  The store owner commented how worn the camera was!  I do use my camera a lot.  When he told me the price to fix it plus shipping, I decided to get a new one.  I got the same model, Canon PowerShot.  But, somehow with this new one I'm having a bit of a color issue.  The green in the tablecloth in this photo is a bit yellower than in the painting.  The sky in "The Painted Desert" the other day was a bit bluer, the actual sky in the painting was more violet.  I'm sure I'll figure it out, but....any thoughts?

Michael was telling me that my camera came with filters installed in it. I wonder if you are using a setting that has one of those filters in place; they do change the colors.

Sherry, thank you. Interesting. I'll get out the instructions and read through all of them.
