Painting again!

Mary and Donna came and painted with me today in the studio. I loved it! It took a while to set up a still life arrangement in a cardboard box with black fabric inside behind the objects, and of course we had to take some time for lunch and talking, but all together I imagine we painted 3 1/2 -4 hours. So good to have company while painting. This will need more work, but for now I'm going to let it sit and will look at it again later.

We already have a paint day planned for next month. Next MONTH???? Now that the studio is clean and organized, I'll have to call up artist friends to come play with me while the weather is so perfect. In the meantime I can put on the TV for company, I guess.
Now a nap......

This stilllife is beautiful Susan! I love the shadows dancing on the porcelain and the how the yellow lemons and lime green scarf play off the blues and purples. Nice job! Perhaps I'll come play with you someday...

Yes, Please! I'd love to have some time with you while we paint. Thank you for the detailed feedback, too. I got up this morning and went out to the studio to see what else it needed and I think it's done now. I worked on it a few minutes after my nap last night and went ahead and signed it, but you never know how something will look after a good night's sleep!

Wonderful painting! You amaze me how fast and accurate you are. Mike just looked at the enlarged version and agreed. He said this one is more impressionistic than some others he's seen. Ofcourse my favorite part is the glass vase. Or maybe the sugar bowl. No wait, the green cloth. Hmmmmm.
