Fruit Plate

Fruit Plate 6x8"
Oil on archival panel / framed in gold and black float frame

This red pear and fruit is my favorite painting from Carol Marine's advanced workshop in Santa Fe. On the last day, she gave us tips on how to paint reflections. I brought this home and then lightened the reflections and darkened the background. Now I love it!! Here are some pics of my art buddies in the workshop. We had such fun!

Yes, that shadow is me taking the picture.

I think that this might be my favorite, too! Love the photos of all those great looking gals!

Deb, love this one! Your reflections are just perfect, beautiful painting! Thank you for the great pics of everyone! I wish that I had taken more of our terrific group!

Wow, that lemon just glows. Again colors on this one are so vibrant, so alive. So fun to see the pics of us from class too!

It's so fun to see you all together at the workshop!! Wonderful friendships that inspire and encourage the pursuit of creativity are a thing to be savored. Very precious indeed.
