Fiesta Orange


Here's another one for Monadnock Fine Art Gallery - one step closer to that 6-10 pieces I need to bring in. I'm starting to get tired - I guess this momentum can't last forever. I love the rendering of them all, but coming up with the compositions and lighting them just wipes me out. I set this still-life up the day before I did the sidewalk drawing and then yesterday when I got back from Art Walk until I went to bed and today all day I've been working on the rendering.

I am terribly excited however to finally use one of the fiestaware mugs that I purchased on ebay. I bought 10 of them in all the different colors and they've been waiting impatiently to find a spot in one of my still-lifes. :)

I'm ready for a real coffee now! :)

Another beautiful piece! Excellent composition. Look forward to seeing the remainder of your pieces for the Monadnock Fine Art Gallery. ;-D

Attempting to do all that you're doing at this time must be exhausting. Your professionalism, enthusiasm and dedication is inspiring.

Thanks Fannie! It is a bit tiring. I just hope I don't crash!

Thanks Linda!

Thanks Meg - I love this format too - if you couldn't tell! ;-) It just so happens to be a standard size for Ampersand Pastelbord.
