Yesterday was a fun painting day. I love setting up still lifes. So on most Fridays I have the opportunity to set up a few still lifes for a wonderful group of painters and then I get to paint. The hardest thing is deciding which one to do. On a very good day I have done three of varying degrees of my abilities. This meaning that I hope to have one that feels complete. That does not always happen, but I learn lots about my focus. It is so important to ask myself questions and to stay on task. Art is a discipline. As an artist I study all the time. I read and look at lots of work. Each painting I do reflects something I am working toward. This one reflects brushwork, color, form and shape. Now there are things in this painting that disturb me, but for the most part I am happy enough to post it here for all to see. And for the disturbing things, I know what I need to work on.
