My Favorite Things - 30 Paintings in 30 Days
"Fraternal Twins", Oil, 6" x 6"
Today was the first day of my three day workshop here in South Pasadena. I am blessed this week with a group of wonderful artists. Some have painted for years, others never before. We laughed, shared stories and had a wonderful day painting with the palette knife. Our only issue was the cold ... 28 degrees in Pasadena last night. Seriously?
I like to start out on the first day painting still life. It's an easier subject and gives everyone a chance to focus more on the palette knife than the subject matter. We painted pears and the end result was amazing.
Tomorrow we are painting boats ... which creates a problem for me since I am not allowed to post a boat painting for my 30 in 30 Challenge. I am also cooking dinner for my students tomorrow night so I haven't quite figured out how I am going to get my painting done tomorrow. Any ideas???
