Sauce Jug with Red Onion

Oil painting of a blue porcelain sauce jug beside a red onion.
It's so hard to keep coming up with onion puns (especially red ones): bloody Allium.

Lemon in Glass Jar

Oil painting of a lemon in a glass jar--laid on its side--with a gold-coloured lid.
I composed a somewhat juicy caption for this picture, but I've decided to keep a lid on it.

Former Presbyterian Church Hall, Parkville

Oil painting of the doorway to a Victorian-era brick ecclesiastical building.
This building of modest length is, from my flat, only a short haul.

Peppers

Oil painting of a large red pepper and two smaller yellow peppers.
Per diem painter picked a peck of prismatic peppers; except that it's a paltry peck (according to Wikipedia, a peck is a quarter of a bushel, which is a bit more than shown here) and can barely be described as peckish, unless of course you're hungry.

Wooden Elephant with Tomato

Oil painting of a small carved wooden elephant beside a red tomato.
I struggled a bit with this painting, even though it wasn't exactly a mammoth task.

Pipers Creek Landscape

Oil painting of a landscape with rolling hills and trees, with three cows in the foreground.
It's too late for me to come up with a pun about cows: I really need to hit the hay.

House on Morrah Street, Parkville

Oil painting of a Victorian-era house with bordered by trees and a box hedge.
After leaving my house in search of a painting subject, I became engrossed with the light reflecting from this building: I was under house arrest.

Bins in Parkville Laneway

Oil painting of two green and yellow bins in a laneway bordered by brick walls and vegetation.
Composing a caption for this canvas has been considerably confounding: I suppose I've bin a little put out lately.

Lemon and Garlic Bulb in Pigeon Holes

Oil painting of a lemon and a garlic bulb in vertical pigeon holes.
Whilst these items are in pigeonholes, the holes are only part of the whole set of pigeonholes (there are a whole lot more).

Pipers Creek Landscape

Oil painting a landscape with a sheep and a poplar in the foreground, and hills in the background.
I was searching for a compositional element to balance the poplar when a sheep serendipitously wandered into view--so I put it to good ewes.

Pots on Brick Step

Oil painting of a large earthenware container and several pot plants on a brick step.
It was a particularly hot afternoon when I went outside to paint, and as I sat pondering these pots, a pleasant cool change arrived; thus proving that a watched pot never boils.
