I was on my way out to the studio to paint this orange and, as always,
had forgotten something so I set the orange and the ever-present cup
of tea on the deck table and was enthralled with the riot of color on
the green glass. So . . . of course, had to get the camera. The wind was
gusty and the tag dancing (a little bonus). I need to thank Carol Carmichael
and her wonderful blog for mentioning she had taken a David Shevlino
workshop. He's also on Painting Perceptions. I had seen his work before
but not recently so I spent a little time this morning watching his videos on
youtube. He has also produced a dvd of his own. Loved watching the way
he wields his brush.

That was one windy day up here! Little tea tag fluttering. You have created a feeling with beautiful brushwork, Lorraine.
