"Osage-Oranges and Purple" Painting in Progress

"Osage Oranges and Purple" work in progress, 24"h x 18"w, oil, ©Jill Banks 2011
Today for Still Life class, students brought in a vast array of treasures. We had every corner covered and even some extra, very paintable subjects to ignore. Trina brought in these flowers (I don't know what they are) and purple vase and osage-oranges ... and this setup inevitably "called me" the most. (They were all tempting.) I moved the arrangement ... that's fading fast upstairs to my studio to paint in the afternoon. I have a feeling the flowers will be down to the tabletop by the time I can get back to them tomorrow.

In the next two days, I have a lot to do ... but they are unscheduled. That's a relief.
