Peared Up, 12 x 9
Lately, I have been painting a lot, re-working things, and generally being less than thrilled with the results, i.e. "ease and flow" have not been my companions of late! Above is a small "warm up" study, done in 15 minutes, that I like better than three other pieces which I have been "over-thinking," (one example below).
I spoke with my painting friend, Bill Davidson, today about a plein air event, and told him I have been spending lots of time, resulting in not much, and he said "Uh oh, you're getting ready to grow!" Well, I certainly hope that's the case - and that better times lie ahead!
French Bottles, 30 x 20
On a positive note, I taught a FUN workshop last Sunday, my first at Huff Harrington Fine Art. The gallery setting was lovely, with French music piping through the rooms - and sunshine beaming in the windows. It was a great group of painters--who did 3 paintings in about 3 hours, and seemed to enjoy it too. Wish I had some photos of the proceedings, but I was running around so much, I forgot to take them.
