The studio tour went very well! I had a lot more visitors than I anticipated. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, it was so good to see some of you again! And thank you for all the encouragement, something this tired mom really needed.
Here's a simple still life I painted for the tour:
I stumbled upon this scene while wandering around Carp, waiting for the sleeping baby strapped to my chest to wake up. Baby nap, exercise, and a painting find? Now that's my kind of multitasking. I was probably getting a bit of a tan too. Quadruple score! That's probably the max amount of productive I'll be this week.
If you've been following this blog for any amount of time, then you know that I LOVE painting white buildings (they have the best shadows), and I love palm trees. This painting let me do both.
Hi! I'm Sharon Schock, an artist living and working in Carpinteria, California. In 2009 I started a daily painting project where I complete one small painting each day.
