Both regular readers of my blog will be aware of my tendency to paint companion objects; this time I thought I'd depict three things so as to draw a crowd.

Mandarine with Small Bottle

Oil painting of a mandarine beside a small glass bottle.
There was a marine mandarine,
Marooned by a vast sea of green.
In a bottle was placed
A note that said, "Make haste!
I'm in desperate need of caffeine."

Manna Gum at Golden Hour, Pipers Creek

Oil painting of a eucalypt in front of a distant mountain range.
Apparently the "golden hour" is a photographers' term for the period shortly before sunset (and shortly after sunrise, which isn't what's depicted here).  Attempting to represent what might otherwise be captured in the click of a button is perhaps more accurately called, in painters' terms, the rush hour.

Small Copper Pot with Asparagus Spears

Oil painting of a bunch of asparagus spears beside a small copper pot with handles.
Small pots are copper, asparagus too; but only when oxidisation is through.
