I stayed up late last night, painting into the wee hours of the morning, then got up early to the "Sound of Music". No, it wasn't Julie Andrews, though I do love her in that movie. It was the sound of hammering! The construction crew had arrived, and they were working on my studio at 7:30 am. I could have slept a little longer, but having them here, even at that hour, makes me smile.
I finished "Still Life with Onions" this morning. I think it came out well. It was the first time I had ever painted transparent glass, or attempted anything semitransparent like the onion skins. For the most part I think the painting is a success. I certainly enjoyed the process, though the bottle rims were a pain. I think I spent more time on them than on any other part of the painting. I hope you enjoy seeing my latest project. Please excuse the glare - the paint is still wet!
