Prepare to get Stewed

The challenge of the painting was to get the texture of this hammered copper pot.  I love the colors that were reflected in the copper.  When I got the pot the way I wanted it, I made a trip to the grocery store to see what I should put in it.  Now we are ready to make up a nice stew.  Just out of site is the stewing wine.  Only a half bottle left - cook only half stewed!

Hot Gossip

I know there is a great conversation going on here.  These ladies didn't notice me hovering around with my camera.
I went back to my studio to paint in the air conditioning as it was one of those hot and humid days in charleston. A perfect day for the the beach and "Hot Gossip".

Flower Power

I decided to paint flowers because I rarely do.  The biggest problem is setting up the still life and then,  once done, flowers die!  I found that florists are complimented when I go in and ask to photograph their arrangements.  That is an option.  However, if you have a day to paint, it's worth painting by the real thing.  Here are my yellow posies.
