"Sisterhood" Still Life


oil on canvas panel 8x8 inches
These two big events I've been working on have prevented me from painting for over a week. It will be a great day when things settle down and I can get back into the daily routine.
Meanwhile, I've posted this painting done back in March. There's a story behind this one: A group of women artist friends got together in January and loaded a suitcase with about 9 old junky items. We dubbed ourselves "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Trunk". As you might guess, the "trunk" is making it's way from house to house where each artist uses her choice of at least six items to create her art piece. Just about every medium will be represented in an upcoming exhibit of these works. We get together once in a while to see how it's going and share food (of course) and laughs...a great idea from a creative whirlwind, Melanie Phillips. Hey artists out there, you could start your own group!
