"Number 12" 10" x 10" oil on linen

I seem to be on to these pool balls for a while now. I especially love the yellow one, which is number 1. I'm currently looking to purchase a number 3, which is a solid redish-orange color. I love drawing spheres, although the yellow ball, now that I'm really looking at it, looks a little off anatomically. Light bulbs, also, are an excellent object to practice your drawing. I wanting this little painting to be viewed mostly in shadow with accents from the light source.

As always, I love your paintings, and find the pool balls quite fascinating. Also... I immediately recognized that first piece of embroidery because I have the picture hanging on my inspiration board here! The little lamb piece is very sweet, and I can see how it would be hard to part with either of them.
