Out-of-doors still life



It seemed like a good idea at the time ..I set up a little still life station in the back yard, but brrrrrrrr! I certainly could have used an outdoor heater! End result=mediocre painting with crookity bottle. I was frozen throughout the whole effort. Well...nothing a little hot chocolate can't fix.

You should have been painting here in South Texas where it's been between 70 and 90'ish degrees the last six weeks.

C'mon down!

It will get warmer. And it will also rain.

Hi Celeste,

Well your photograph of where you were set up definitely looks inviting. The hot chocolate sounds great.

And since I love glass so much, a do enjoy your painting of the bottle with the reflection. I know how hard it is to capture that in a painting. Looking forward to seeing more of your still life works.

I don't mind that bottle at all. It has personality!
Thanks for those great posts about the workshop and Stansfield's talk. Those were great.

Hi, Celeste.
I really like your choice of colors for this alla prima. I can't bring myself to set up outside anymore regardless of the weather...for health reasons.

Celeste, just discovered your blog. i read the last post, and comments, about Alyson Stanfield, using fb, etc. Thought I'd comment on your most recent day: I've been on fb for the last few months. I've watched other artistis get lots of friends, comment often, etc. I'm not real active. But, I agree, it is one more way of networking. You can put an fb badge on your blog (I haven't, yet) and bloggers may notice, may then sign up on your fb site. You can also add your blog address under the website address spot on your profile page of fb. these both may get more networking, more visits.
