My time in the studio is still haphazard . . . still boxes to deal with and
tarp-covered furniture on my porch, left-overs from a yard sale. All this
exterior clutter also makes my brain a mess.
I realized I hardly ever paint blue things, so I went to the Salvation Army
on a quest for a blue object, and lo! a blue cup! I plunked down
my 54 cents. I had high hopes for it but now, on the screen, it looks
frizzy. This panel is the double-primed cotton from Raymar and takes paint
differently from the oil primed linen I usually work on. The apple in the cup
has very few strokes so I'm pleased with it. Reflections are difficult . . .
hats off to Carol Marine who does them so naturally.
