Baguette with Blue Cheese

Oil painting of half a baguette beside a quarter piece of blue vein cheese.
This subject had a high degree of difficulty, not because of its technical nature, but because it was my lunch and I was particularly hungry.  As such, the painting isn't quite finished, but the same can't be said for my repast.

Garden at Rosebery Hill, Pipers Creek

Oil painting of a garden with a gravel path running horizontally in the foreground.
Not entirely which trees and shrubs I've depicted here--just the garden variety (actually, I think the dark shadow in the very bottom right is the edge of a Sequoiadendron, but you'll have to take my word for it).

Tarrawingee Landscape

Oil painting of two eucalypts with a distant building in between.
I was going to make a pun about these two trees, but tree puns arboring.

Rock Pools at Woolshed Falls, Beechworth

Oil painting of a small tree in amongst rocks.
Despite appearances, there is actually a waterfall that emerges between these rocks--it falls between the cracks.

Small Bottle with Parmesan Cheese

Oil painting of a small glass bottle beside a cut block of Parmesan cheese.
This painting represents me: I'm rather partial to the bottle, and like a good cheese, I'm a pun gent.

Quince in Wooden Box

Oil painting of a quince inside a wooden box tipped on its side.
If this piece of fruit looks like the same one depicted here and here, it's no quincidence--it is in fact the same quince.

Pear with Onion

Oil painting of a green pear beside a brown onion.
Onions: good for an impaired memory (according to a random study I found on the internet:

Tomato with Petite Liqueur Bottle

Oil painting of a small green Petite Liqueur bottle with a cork, beside a tomato.
Lycopene is an antioxidant found in tomatoes that is rumoured to be a remedy for hangovers, and hence it is fictitiously known in France as le cure.

Teacup and Saucer

Oil painting of a teacup and saucer with an autumn oak leaf design.
Composing yet another pun about tea is a bit of a strain.

Oil painting of three figs on a block of wood.
There are four figs in this painting: the three you can see, and one that's a figment of my imagination.

Building on Mollison Street, Kyneton

Oil painting of a white car parked near a double-story Victorian-era shop.
The building was originally intended to be the focal point of this picture, but a car got in the road--it could have driven me round the bend, but instead I found another gear and steered the painting in a different direction.

Porcelain Jug with Zucchini

Oil painting of a zucchini beside a white porcelain jug with a blue design.
There once was a jug and courgette,
Who ran up a large gambling debt.
When goons paid a visit,
Our friends asked, "how much is it?"
"We can't seem to place all our bets."

Portrait of a Woman with Necklace

Portrait of a woman with bobbed hair wearing a beaded necklace.
In order to complete this painting, I had to draw a bead on the subject (or paint beads to be more accurate).

Garlic Bulb with Painted Glass Vase

Oil painting of a garlic bulb beside a blue glass vase painted with a floral pattern.
Garlic is white, vases are blue; such simplistic verse should I surely eschew.

Carlsruhe Railway Station

Oil painting of a double-storey building with gabled roof bordered by trees.
I've been trying to think of a pun about a railway station, but I keep losing my train of thought.

Mollison Street Bridge, Kyneton

Oil painting of a stone bridge over a shallow river surrounded by trees and other vegetation.
It's too late to come up with an original bridge pun: I don't have the attention span.
