Palette Knife Still Life Painting, "Vase and Pears" 10x10" ,SOLD


I painted this a few weeks ago at the Student Artist's Guild.  My paint group meets there every Monday morning.  It's in a very large loft area that is equiped with easels, many windows, props, stages for models and any kind of music you may want to hear.  It's really like an artist's dream come true!

On this day, I came equiped with three pears and was arranging lights to get the best shadows etc, when I spotted this large ceramic jar.  I was not too inspired by the pears, but the jar got me excited.
It's not always easy being creative.....

Very pretty Carol. We have an artist friend who paints in a loft with other artists in Charlotte. He says being with others helps him be more creative. He only found his talent when he retired, so he's still learning.

Beautiful painting, Carol!! Sounds like a wonderful place to meet. I look forward to going to my workshop since I don't have very good lighting in my art room! Need to fix that!
