Lindsey and I set up this still life and spent a lovely hour or two playing with our paints last Saturday at her house in East Coulee. It’s such a relaxing place and I love to visit Caracol Studio and admire Janet Grabner’s pottery. Sorry, no website to link to for her but look her up if you’re out to the Drumheller area. Such a fun place to shop and chat!

Today I covered up some “duds” with lots of white gesso. What a GREAT feeling ;-) The surfaces looked so clean and inviting and I just mucked about in my paints and doodled creating… this. I have no idea what it’s going to grow up to be or even IF I’ll explore further on it. But, it was sure fun today!

I last posted about this painting back in May and I’ve been looking at it once or twice per week since then. Yesterday, realizing that I would never resolve it without making at least a small change, I charged in. There’s lots to do still, things to fix and add, but I think it is finally taking a new shape and direction. Stay tuned, someday I may finish this one, haha!

I painted this yesterday while sitting on my friend Lindsey’s back deck. It was a great day to paint outside – just the right temperature [22 C] and NO bugs! These apples were an amazing purplish red color with little bits of green. Nice to look at but tough to sort out on the palette. The reflections in the white plate were fascinating… the combined result of the blue sky overhead, the purplish apple color, and the silver teapot sitting in the background. Enjoy!
