One Down, the Next is Coming up!

This painting is finished. I may have to take another photograph as I think it could look a little better. The light seems to have washed out some color on the left side. I'll try it again another day. Right now I am thrilled it's done.

Moving along now onto the next work. Something is clicking and keeping me in it. Who knows what tomorrow will be like. For right now I have plans. I have ideas. I have supplies. I have references for work. I think I can feel a series coming on. And it feels really good.

The Blast Off class is over, but the learning continues on. This week I will be working in another class with Alyson B. Stanfield called Cultivate Collectors. I like the word "cultivate." It reminds me of things that are growing.

Things are growing alright.


  1. Deliciously beautiful! I love the vibrant colors and the placement of the fruit, everything! That peach on top makes me want to just eat it up!
