Hope you had a fabulous weekend! We had beautiful weather, aside from everyone having a cold at our house it was a lovely weekend. Sam, my youngest son turned 2 on Thursday, so we had celebratory time. As if on cue Sam decided he was now old enough to not have to sleep in his crib. We spent the weekend trying to corral him. It was a struggle, he has tasted freedom and there is no turning back. I guess the writing is on the wall and a big boy bed is in our future!
For this weeks painting I completed a 6x6 of a gorgeous still life that I stumbled upon on one of our trips to Paris. I do love how the produce was arranged as if it was just waiting to be painted. This one took me longer than I thought because of all of the texture. Texture on a small scale can prove to be challenging. I do love the variety of greens in this painting and the basket just makes it feel so homey.
Steven got back in the game this week. He did a drawing. he told me he doesn't want to paint right now, so I guess he'll be working on some drawings. I am trying to talk him into painting some large canvases. He was pretty excited about the prospect of that.
I also am about to embark on my first full sheet painting. I got a half sheet of plywood and polyeurathaned it this weekend. I've stretched my paper, now I just have to get my nerve up to start. I would love to hear any advice on working in large scale.
