Casual Company, oil, 10" x 8"
I took many photos of still life arrangements in preparation for this Saturday's online painting workshop I'm offering... then could only pick one for the workshop! The other references seemed to cry, "Not fair!" So this is another painting from those references. Same apple, yes. I painted this during the Olympics' opening ceremonies Friday evening , and yesterday I thought it was dry enough to put in a frame and take with me to the gallery. It sold to a young, beautiful couple from L.A. I'm glad I thought to photograph it before they walked in!
There is still room for perhaps 4 more artists in the workshop this Saturday, February 20. We'll start at 9 a.m. Central, everyone in their own homes next to their computers. We'll paint til noon, everyone following along as I lead the way through the painting. Then they'll email me images (if they like) of their works-in-progress and I'll do an assessment-and-suggestion session online. We'll paint again until 4:00 and have another assessment session. Everything will be recorded so that the artists can revisit any or all of the workshop for a month following. So if someone has to leave early or loses their internet connection, no worries! If you'd like to spend the day with me (and with a great group of artists through the chat room) email me and we'll get you registered. It's $50. for the workshop. firstname.lastname@example.org
