I am still working on my sparkley new still life, albeit at a snails pace.
But I am enjoying the subject and the process so no complaints here.

Because my studies are often color saturated it can be challenging to seek out 
the true high and low key areas of the composition.  
To this end, I keep a black and white copy of the set up near by.
This makes it much easier to pick out the highlights and shadows.

The cut crystal bowls are a delicate balance of refracted color from the underlying fabric
and the various twisted planes of the glass.  
But that's exactly why I chose this subject to study.

It may take a while but I do love coming down to my table every morning to have this waiting for me.
I'll finish it…eventually!

In the meantime I have weedy gardens to tame, a shore house to organize and a 
little grandson to get to know.

Meet Henry.

A Little Exhibit with Charm

Last night we attended the opening reception of a show in Skippack Village featuring artists from my local art league.  Skippack Village is a little town about 20 minutes west of my house in PA.
A beautiful little place with shops and cafes galore and last night was First Friday.

There was a juggler and various musicians performing on the sidewalks and the shops were all very inviting and quaint.  I loved the shop our art show was featured in.  The art was displayed on scraped, shabby chic old doors within the center of the shop.
Larry and I met interesting artists and patrons alike.
It was the most unusual show I've ever had my work in and I have to say I kind of loved it! 

It was a perfect Spring night for walking around the village and we also enjoyed a great dinner sitting by an open doorway and sipping wine.

Our weekend is off to a great start and I hope yours is too!
