Working from Life

Thanks for all the support in the last post! Having trouble getting something I'm happy with is a common thing... and I eventually come out of it! I am still thinking about the message in the bottle one, as I really like the idea. The message in the bottle says "Where is My Mind" a reference to a great song by the Pixies. :)

In the meantime I've updated my website, started step one of cleaning out the room that will be my studio, cleaned out the pantry and kitchen cabinets, sent in my entry to this year's CPSA international show, and did a little drawing from life of some olives. Maybe getting all this stuff done will have cleared my mind!

& don't look too hard at the elipses on the jar of grapes, it was just a little study from life!! ;)

I love these olives. Well, I actually don't like green olives, but I love the drawing!

I've been cleaning too. How exciting that your "Burrow" is starting to take shape!

Great jar and olives and a good start coming back to work! I like the last still life set-up and your page looks great! Sounds like cleaning is "in" right now. :)`

Thanks Paula and JO!!

The burrow is coming to shape - although we have to re drywall the ceiling I'm afraid. :( There a bit of water damage on the ceiling.
