30 in 30 - Day Fourteen - SOLD

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???

What if you painted the same scene but with something else in the water in the space where the boat would be? :)
