I have not painted a large still life for a while. Haven't painted anything large for a while. I have been feeling very down about the economy. When things aren't going the way we plan or think even though we are trying our best, it's difficult to get motivated. A call from Jim McDonald asking me to join his "art party", talking to my friend Nancy and some other little "God sends" have made me rethink my attitude about the whole thing. Also helping my friend Eleanor with her blog has made me realize we just have to stay in the saddle and keep trying. I wasn't all that happy with this painting. It feels a little cool but it's ok and for a large work in a while I guess I am just happy to have it completed. I'll see if it is a keeper I guess after the honeymoon is over.
Thanks for looking and tell me what you think. It's fun to be really painting again and focusing on my art and not on the world! Thanks Nancy, Eleanor and Jim!
This was my demonstration for my class yesterday. It's amazing I was able to complete it. I wasn't going to but it wasn't working and so it was suggested by my students to put in the flowers. Then they really wanted to see it finished so I trudged through.

Impressionistic, Colorful and fun, this painting is one of my favorites. I love to paint the many antique dishes that I have collected over the years. Please feel free to call me concerning any work you see on my blogs or webpages. Thank you for visiting and come back often.
