Still life in blue and orange

From a PAFA Class I took a couple of years ago. Really need to take a better photo, but this is the only one that came out so far.

Studio 6

My studio so far. At least one side, the other is mostly boxes and a few shelves. Started on a new piece this week and cooked up plans for another. Gets really nice afternoon light and over looks a creek. I need some more shelves and a cabinet of some sort. Have been checking freecycle, but nothing that will work yet. Will post more picks as progress continues.

From MKR and my former backyard

Here is an assemblage based primarily on my fondest affection for magnolia's as expressed through the writings of Marjorie Kenan Rawlings. She was most notably the author of The Yearling. This passage came from Cross Creek a collection of stories she wrote while living in North Florida near Micanopy. Her home, as well as part of her orange orchard is preserved as a state park. Loved going there when we lived in Florida.

Gusta's Magnolia

This is my painting, "Gusta's Magnolia," as it hangs at the Philadelphia Sketchclub exhibit, "Art of the Flower." Attended the reception on Sunday, diverse and interesting show overall. These are photos that I took with the camera in my phone, so pretty poor quality. Will stop back by in the next two weeks or so and take some with a real camera.
