Veggies - SOLD

This is the latest DSFDF challenge on Karin Jurick's blog.

Oh it felt so good to paint again!! This was pure enjoyment and a bit of a departure from the way I usually work in that it is much more casual. I wanted to go lighter and fresher in value and color and working on the canvas was also a change. The whole effect is more contemporary and less realistic- a bit looser for me. Now I really want to paint more food! Time for tomato paintings again.

My studio is now rearranged and much more workable. I haven't thrown away much so I guess that is a long time project. Garage sale still in the works..........

Beautiful piece I love the color of your shadow.
Glad your working on your garage sale items. I'm doing the same and I gave myself a sentence "what if I died today would my family have an easy time with these things !! "
