I had to get new glasses a while back. This is my old pair. I can't wait to paint my new ones.

Seeing Stars

I am having troubles lately photographing my images. I prefer to take photos of my work outside. The dilemma I am having and always have from November to March is the snow. Snow is very bright and its everywhere, controlling reflections on the paintings is almost impossible. Not to mention the plummeting temperatures -30˚C
(-22˚F) and colder last week. I am forever trying to find new ways to improve photo quality so if anyone has any suggestions for taking photos of paintings indoors I would welcome it!
Stay warm my northern friends!

This is a small study of cups that were stacked on my table. I really piled the paint on this one.

Trancparency Perceived

It sometimes takes me a while to set up items to paint. I arrange and rearrange before I get something that works. In this case the transparency of the small bottle distorting a small amount of the objects beyond is what makes the whole piece interesting to me. It took some work to see what wasn't there. I am glad I persevere.
