Apples on Blue - 6x6

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:

White House and Palms - 9x12

 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.
