     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.
