Oil on Panel
I know you must be asking yourself "If she puts her grapes in a vase, where the heck does she put her flowers?"
I really enjoyed painting today. That seems crazy to me considering the kids are home and there was one phone call after another. But between urgencies, it was just me, the grapes, the vase and the paint. Each little grape called out "Paint me! Paint ME!!" So one by one, they all got painted and the painting ended happily ever after.

Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
