Still Life

I've been working in my friend Jim's studio a day or so every week in addition to painting outdoors. The past couple sessions we have been working by window light only, observing subtle effects. It is challenging to finish one of these in one session, just like a landscape, the light is fleeting.

I have a few more pieces that I'd like to share, but the pictures don't do them justice. I will try to get better pics soon. A lot of my time has been spent doing calculus homework, I'm figuring 3 hours every day, in addition to my other classes.

If only it was that simple!

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. I love that people are still making good soul music.
