Aside from my classwork, I've practiced at home when I can. One night, the big boys watched a movie upstairs, Jack went to bed and Mark was traveling. I made an ultra easy dinner, put a movie on in the background, and set up this still life on the kitchen counter. And then, painted until midnight. I love doing that, even though I sometimes find it hard to sleep when I'm finished because I'm actually so keyed up. It also gives me a deadline of sorts, so I don't overwork things. On the down side, with the overhead lights kind of low and a little IKEA desk lamp aimed at my fruit, it makes it hard to see the colors sometimes, and I can be a bit surprised in the morning. The red-violet on this one was a bit brighter than I thought, but I decided to keep it. 8X10 on a stretched canvas.
Kind of art show theme here lately, but this space is show & tell, now isn't it?
