Hello Friends,

Now that I am back from NYC my focus is on completing several 8x10 inch still life paintings for an upcoming show in Suffolk, VA. This is the first one I am happy with. I had already completed three paintings, only to re-assess them late last week and concluding that I needed to start over.

The time away from the studio and seeing great art in NYC helped give me a sense of direction for this upcoming show. August is going to be a busy month!

Thanks for stopping by and reading :) Liz

Hola Liz,
Muy buen "Still life", me gusta el tema, y más me gustan los colores, azul y naranja, complementarios, vibrantes.
Muy bien!!
Un abrazo

The colors of the peaches, and the expressive brushwork just add to making this entire piece a huge success!

Susan Roux said...

Viewing great art always has us assessing our own. This is a lovely piece. Happy painting!

Beautiful painting, Liz. I love how the back of the bowl falls into shadow. The way you handled the shadow with a small glint of light is masterful. Very, very nice.
