Here's something I don't often do. A set-up still life. While camped on the desert a while back, I found this piece of desert “driftwood”, and wanted to use it in a painting. I had just finished eating a clementine for breakfast, and dipped back into the bag for these three. I put them, with the piece of wood, on top of Betsy and as soon as I saw them against that clear, bright Southwestern sky, I knew I had a winner.

I usually prefer doing “found” stills, but since the driftwood was newly found, a setup seemed worth doing.

PEEL Daily Painting #858

PEEL

Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

The peel from a clementine, great shapes, negative spaces, shadows and light for an artist to play with.

Betsy got new shoes! Yep, I bit the bullet today and took her in for some new tires. Finished up the cleaning out and rearranging that took up most of yesterday, and did some shopping in preparation for getting out of town, if I ever do. I just keep finding things here that need to be taken care of. Maybe tomorrow.
