Putting the final touches on these plump little persimmons. This 5"x5" still life has proven to be such fun. I find that I treat each object I paint with as much care as I would one of the faces in my portraits. It is just a different portrayal of character.

Weekend Workshop

 What a fun workshop I was able to teach with hardworking students and fantastic models. Everyone on both sides of the easel gave it their all. I started things off with a demonstration Friday night and then Saturday and Sunday students did a number of studies and finished pieces.
