Until I have my website done in April (something else Leslie will have a workshop on), I will be posting my completed paintings and prices here. I hope you will enjoy coming to take a look, enjoy some of my musings, and purchase a picture or two. In any case, comments are welcome and I hope you enjoy some of my musings. Please pass along this blog site to others as I hope to get some continued traffic through here.

Side by Side
Our first painting was a study in values. I have posted mine and then a collection of those from the class. I now have a better understanding of values but especially how to check to see if you have the right one. We all began with 5 colors - Alizarin Crimson, Sap Green, Yellow Cadmium Medium, Ultramarine Blue and Titanium White. Yep, that's all. I am amazed about the variety of colors that were created to paint the same picture. How fun!
(Yes, I need to fix the scraped side of my green apple. This is the problem with transporting wet paintings! Amazing what you see when you post your own pictures!)
The second picture of the china cup and lemons I will have to post later. Forgot to take a picture. :(

Our third day of the workshop was held after the snow and ice had melted and everyone could safely get into Atlanta. Our task was a vase of flowers that Leslie had set near her studio window. It was a challenge to say the least. I finished it this past weekend and I am pleasantly pleased with it. Here are some of the 'in progress' photos.
