The Daily Paintworks Challenge for the week of January 8- 14 is to paint a picture of your breakfast.  Well, this was not my breakfast because I couldn't cook in the studio!  I actually had 2 slices of bacon, two fried eggs, and a healthy juiced fruit and vegetable combo that was made from 1 beet, 1 carrot, 1 apple, 1 orange and a one inch square of fresh ginger.  Oh, not to forget the large cup of Colombian coffee  "straight"!
I painted this over a previously used canvas.  I have photos of the canvas and my value study below.

I haven't posted for a week because my children celebrated Christmas with me on the 7th. of January.  I was busy last week with some extra shopping and wrapping, and preparing or picking up food for the weekend.  So the ham in this picture is part of a Honeybaked ham we had.  I still have too much leftover, even though they each took some home.  Ham anybody?! 


  1. LOVE your design and colors.

    Wishing you a creative 2012!
    Happy PPF!

  2. Hi Gloria, I so love your art. It reminds me very much of my grandmother's art.
    Happy PPF

  3. I love how you study the tones and values before painting. This is absolutely fantastic. Look at that delicious ham! I had a lot of hams during the holidays. Thanks for sharing. Lovely work on your previous entries too!

  4. Love your Green plate and ham. No green eggs I guess. This is a wonderful painting
