"Strawberries and Tea"

6" x 8" oil on canvas panel
Well, I made it through a three day workshop and man am I mentally exhausted!

This is the painting I produced today and well, not like my typical stuff lately... but change is good. I did learn a lot of new and different ideas. Like the way a painting reads and the way you would like the viewer to read your painting(s). And setting up still life's and the lighting! I love good input.

This photo was shot quickly today, I will try to get a better photos of the studies I did this weekend, later this week.

It was nice to work in oil again. I really do like it.

Oh, yes, that is a coffee cup on the right, the handle is hidden on the back side.... or maybe this is a European cup? Hmmm.... take care!

another wonderful painting! would like to see all of those photos of course. also if I ever came to Indiana - by way of Chicago after seeing my mama - I would stop by your studio and take a mixed media workshop from you - of course you would have to put me and Harvey and Tiny up - but I know that that's NO PROBLEM!!!!

Oh yes, you, Harvey and Tiny would be no problem.
I think Tyger would like Tiny and does Harvey smoke cigars?
