The Still Life Progresses

I continue to make progress on the still life painting.  There is no one area that is completely finished, still layers to go but I am pleased with it.

A long way to go.  I hope to have it finished in three weeks when my class ends.  It is harder to work on large projects in the summer when we are changing living locations often.

At the insistence of my instructor, I entered an art show this week for the first time.  It was a juried show, so not all entries are accepted.  One of my submissions was accepted and is hanging on display for a month.  Kind of fun.  I did not win an award but did not expect to with this particular painting.  I have gifted most of my paintings over the years so need to work on a few good ones for myself.  Maybe the still life will fit that bill!

  1. Which one was in the show? Very exciting!

  2. Red Mustard. There is a new header on the blog that connects with a page with some of my pieces on it that were readily available to the blog. Not many of my favs but the Hosta pic did not make the cut and the Red Mustard did.
