"Indoor Picnic" in Progress

I'm not sure if the title is staying, but here's a sneak peek at the still life in progress from yesterday's demo.  It's been moved from the classroom to my home studio to make way for studiomate John Francis McCabe's talk tonight (Wednesday) about the history of Fine Art Portraiture. Good reason for the move ... but this setup was much easier to arrange the first time.  So today, I spent about equal effort resetting up/getting the light similar as painting.

Hopefully I can finish it up before all the flowers call it quits.

The Great Falls School of Art Student Exhibition is up and looks terrific thanks to all the contributors. Come take a look for yourself during the opening and awards reception on Friday, January 16, 7 to 9pm at the Artists' Atelier, 1144 Walker Road, Suite G, Great Falls, VA. Hope to see you there.
