More of Mary Elizabeth's bounty from the downtown market. I didn't paint today as I am painting this evening at a benefit for Kiwanis's at the Five Rivers. Here is a link to the event, which should be fun , and certainly is for a good cause;

Another cow painting. I love the way that they are so 'gang' oriented! Pushing the palette here, but I think with black cows, one has to really go for it with light and shadow, and purple is so nice with that green grass. Notice sometime how' blue' 'black' really is in the sunlight!L.

I started a watercolor today. Its such an opposite process from oil paint ( light to dark vs. dark to light)! I have not worked with watercolor much lately, and I am having fun. I guess this picture is about half way finished. If I don't wreck it before I finish, I will post the final product later.

I love how these pears are sort of maternal in their huddle, as though they are librarians at story time. I am trying to really see the color in the shadows of everything. I was at a fancy dinner recently; the white tablecloth had positively aqua shadows... the water goblets with lemon slices and glasses of white wine...all glittering and reflecting....sigh. It was a beautiful sight. I wonder if that is the appeal of a fancy dinner...the aesthetics.

Yes if this looks suspiciously familiar...I just spun them around and painted them again today! As I paint, I always listen to music and today I listened to a new group called 'Jukebox and the ghost' and an old group called 'the La's'. Both dynamic and uplifting bands.

I have a test in Modern art class tonight, and so I have been writing essays all day! I painted this over the weekend, baby artichokes and open tulips. I struggled with the color of the tulips... they were peachy turning into a deep reddish orange, which I didn't capture- oh well. It was fun trying.

Figure drawing has started back up again! Devlin Wilson is the proctor of the group, he is a fantastic artist...if I ever have a house portrait done of my house....I would want one of his!
