A still life (practice) start

The weather was rough today, very cold and windy. I wanted to paint something and settled on my Winsor Newton jar with brushes. This is just 30 minutes into it and I'll do more tomorrow. Still life practice is a fine way to stay warm and dry.  

Happy Wed-nes-day!

Bonjour chère Céleste,

Une bonne manière de rester au chaud et d'oublier la grisaille qui sévit dehors... J'aime beaucoup ce pot.
Les pinceaux semblent nous tendre la main !

Gros bisous ☂ (il pleut chez moi aujourd'hui !)

Painting our painting materials is always such fun. Yet I have never done it. Maybe this winter. You are an inspiration.

Just 30 minutes? I couldn't do that in a day!
I always LOVE your work Celeste- everything you do is artistic and beautiful- just like you.
Have a wonderful day dear friend. :-)

30 mins - how wonderful - fresh and accurate paint of tools close to an artist's heart.

Paint brushes ... in a pot ... like actors in the wings. each with lines unspoken about unpainted things. (an adaptation of my poem 'Pencils in a Jar')

I'm back ... for good this time ... with lots of things to do!

PS Hi Celeste!!!

I hope you are well, Celeste: five days since you last posted is a long time for you

A much more painterly subject than Ellis' dirty dishes and my tuna fish bowl! Well done! I like you still life stage as well.
