Interestingly enough .... I find myself drawn to this simple set up.   Small white plate with something red on it.   First it was apples, then cherries (twice) then strawberries!   Usually a blueish background.   The good news is that drawing an decent ellipse is getting easier.   Still taking several tries.   The bad news is adding a fork is what became my new challenge!    I had it to my satisfaction then starting adjusting.   Adjusting more then scaping yesterday's work.   This led to some muddy areas.   This is on my "to do again list".

Weisse, Weisse and Weisse

Dark glass painting is mysterious! You have to really look for the color in the dark bottles. The labels however are bright and fun to paint!

Corona … Gordita and Coronita

I have always loved painting glass. Dark glass is a bit different than light/clear. This was interesting to find the color in the darks.

Shiner Bock and BBQ

My artisit collective Daily Painters Project's theme in July is the play Five Course Love at North Coast Rep Theatre. Each act is set in a different restaurant – one a Texas BBQ. What goes with Texas BBQ better than a cold Shiner Bock? This subject allowed continued practice painting glass bottles with cropped distorted angles. What could be more fun?
