A Time To Paint -a still life painting in oil


oil 12x12 inches magnify not for sale at this time My fellow artist friend, Carol, gave me some fresh eucalyptus cuttings. I love the leaf shape and unique color! In my excitement and against my better judgement, I set this up to paint. With my workshop coming up I knew I wouldn't have time to finish it while the paint was still wet. Eventually it all worked out. Thanks, Carol! This piece may be for sale online at a later date. IN OTHER NEWS: Thank you to supportive friends who came to Redlands last night. (You know who you are!) Also, thank you to new collectors who loved and purchased my work. It was a fun evening with fast and furious sales. Thank you, Redlands Community Hospital Foundation for inviting me.
