Outdoor Still Life



This is a 5" x 7" oil on panel. I did sand it lightly before painting this time. May have helped. These planters were in Castroville at the state park bed and breakfast last year. Not sure what the cement slabs were that they were on. There was no door, so they weren't steps. I just loved the way the light was hitting them as it came around the corner of the building. Morgan says she took the photo. I think I did. Never mind. It made for a nice reference for this little painting, whoever took it.

I've started another cat painting, but it'll have to wait until after the first pastel class which is today!

Sunday Morgan and Karen and I were in Karen's car when we were hit by a car driven by a young woman who ran the red light. We're ok. Karen's back and neck are ouchy. I'm a little stiff, but but feeling very lucky. The car didn't fare so well. It's likely totalled. Patty came and picked us up and got us home. Don't you know that she was a welcome sight!

Thanks, Brendy. All's well. Karen's facing a weekend of car shopping and not delighted about it. Talk with you soon! Susan

Whew, I'm glad you are OK. I missed your blog for a couple of weeks and all sorts of things happen. My blog reader doesn't show your new posts. Will have to ask by computer guru, Joanna, why. Hmmm.

Congratulations on the prizes. You do deserve them. Like all your new work. You just get better and better.

I missed the APS meeting as well, we went to the UT baseball fall classic to preview the new players. It was fun,but I will forget them by February.
