I worked today on another painting with apricots and a cherry. It's bigger than yesterday's so it's not finished yet but should be by tomorrow. I'm really enjoying painting from life these days. In college and grad school I always painted from life, but once I started to paint in job situations photographs were always standard and I got used to it. I had forgotten how much more interesting working from life can be!
I painted this one this past winter. I had set this composition up for my class to paint, and I liked it so much I decided to paint it too. It's 6x7 inches and called "Still Life with Orchid" it's oil on canvas on hardboard.
