Two Small Paintings

I really, really meant to paint in my studio last week, but it just didn't happen. Life is pretty chaotic right now, so it was a relief to wake up Tuesday morning knowing that there were three hours set aside for painting! The bottom painting is NOT a pumpkin, although it looks like it. It is actually an heirloom "pineapple" tomato that my friend Blayney brought to the workshop. The top was painted from a plate and spoon provided by the instructor, Cathleen Rehfeld. I've never painted reflective metal before, so it was both a challenge and a lot of fun, and I think more successful than my pumpkiny-pineapple-tomato! :-)
