I painted this piece from a still life set up when I was auditing a studio painting class, once upon a time, many years ago,  at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. It has been 'hiding' in my studio...has never been exhibited anywhere. I think it could be considered 'vintage' at this point.

Ask any artist and you will probably learn that most of us have a few paintings like this that just hide out for one reason or another. At the moment, I haven't been painting as much as I'd like to and scouring the house for paintings that I can post. I've sold more than I've painted (which is wonderful), but..... It has been a challenging year...which was not so wonderful....

I have been painting my recent still life works in  a 'tighter' style recently, but seeing the large, spontaneous brushtrokes in this painting reminded me of how much I enjoy painting looser...

Today's Quotation: "...and so at this time I greet you. Not quite as the world sends greetings, but with profound esteem and with the prayer that for you, now and forever, the day breaks and the shadows flee away."
-Fra Giovani
