Still life

Hi Friends, painted this one not too long ago, it is oil on a 11" x 14" stretched canvas.  

I recently switched to Cobra water miscible oils.  They are oils in every way but the linseed oil in them breaks down with water so they are soap and water clean up. I decided to try to paint healthier and make the switch. You need to stay out of the water if you use them, mixing them with water isn't a good idea as the water evaporates and they become sticky. They make linseed oil for them you can mix throughly into the paint to thin them.  I plan to stay with them. I will keep you posted.

I donated a painting to the Mason Historical Society of their old fire truck Old Betsy.  They auctioned it off at the ice cream social Tuesday night and all of the proceeds went to them, $660 , not bad. I am selling prints if you live in the area and you are interested let me know. 

Good to see you!

Beautiful piece Barbara.!! I love the colors and the looseness on the teapot as well as the flowers...Excellent work. I think auctioning paintings for a cause is such a wonderful idea. In August I'm donating a painting and the proceeds will be going St.Jude's.
