Plums, Quince & Tea

Perhaps I should rename this blog, "The Work In Progress Journal".

So, here is another work in progress! I am actually waiting for a delivery of some art supplies to finish this, and my previously posted 'mottled' piece... and I have started another still life in the meantime. Having three pieces in progress at once is something I thought I would never do. Never say never! Now I'm thinking that I might bring all three to the same 'almost done' stage, then spend a few days just working in 'finish' mode, and complete them. It could be a good thing.

Thank you, Jessica!

Love the pattern in the cloth and my eyes are drawn to the tea pot - but then again I have a thing for tea pots. :-) Hope your supplies arrive soon.

Theresa, the pattern on the cloth is one of the things that needs finishing... wish me luck pulling that off!

This is amazingly beautiful and so realistic!!! My 7 year old daughter had a self portrait chosen to be in a state exhibit! We are so proud. Perhaps one day she'll be doing work nearly as good as yours.
