Demo at co-op

Hi there, Last night was Third Thursday at the Artist Lounge, the new co-op here in town that I display in.   We take turns each month demonstrating and last night was my turn. I set up a still life with a blue and white pitcher and fresh fruit.  I set it up in a box with a light on it, trying to block light coming in from everywhere.  Always makes me a bit nervous to paint in front of a crowd but I enjoyed it.  I did end up taking out a couple of the oranges toward the end, it felt too busy. I am looking at it today and I may do a little more work on it.  It is oil on a 11" x 14" canvas.

Great to see you!

So super that you show us photos of more than just the paintings! Looks like you were having a super time and the painting is beautiful. I can almost taste the juicy oranges!
