Still Lives and Sunshine – Spring Descends Upon Portland, OR!
March 11, 2013 § 23 Comments
It’s true. First there was endless grey and rain and everything felt all Mordor and Voldemort forever, and now– Spring flowers!
We just enjoyed three days of Spring bliss here in Portland which I took advantage of by biking and walking all day long soaking up some much needed vitamin D. Sun starved, bleary eyed Portlanders stumbled out into the sunshine to work in their gardens and breathe in the sweet smell of Spring mud.
Lately I have been enjoying painting directly from life concentrating on color theory and more specifically color mixing and painting with a muted palette. So far, so fun! I’ll share some of the still lives I’ve been working on once they are completed and varnished. <<<>>>
Here are some photos from my wanderings plus a couple of studio shots.
