Batchelder Vase With Bread, Oil, And Garlic
Here is the painting from week four of the Tuesday Still Life Class here in Tryon. Everyone's work is improving, and we painters are trying different things each week. The set-ups are getting more complex. It is so good working with a group on a regular basis!
This set-up was a bit different for me. Nowell brought me this vase, and told me it was basically irreplaceable! It is somewhere in the $3,000 price range. That made me nervous! Then I put up some of my homemade bread (ask me for the recipe; it is so easy and pretty darn good). The oil and garlic had strong translucent colored light which is new for me. And the background is a 20x24 painting(?) that was laying around the Tryon Painters And Sculptors studio at TFAC. Sheesh.
I'm excited about the opening of the show at the Asheville Airport
tomorrow. It will be up for three months! And I'm really looking forward to getting out and painting the changing Autumn landscape over the weekend. Hope you're doing well there.
