"Apples On the Edge" --- SOLD

I hope you can tell that the fabric to the left of the apples is sheer. It was a challenge but really fun to paint. My favorite thing about painting is when an illusion is successfully pulled off. Really all realistic painting is an illusion - you're taking a 2D medium and creating the illusion of something 3D. Really, I like to think of myself of as a magician. :)

My workshop in Round Rock (15 min. from Austin) is official! July 28th and 29th, it will be an intensive 2-day workshop on all aspects of daily painting, from design basics, color mixing/theory and composition to blogging and ebay. If you are interested in attending, please visit the Williamson County Art Center's website, and click on "adult workshops." They require a $25 deposit to hold your spot, and I'm only taking 12 people, so sign up quick. If you have any questions, please let me know - leave a comment or email me.

Carol . . .Good luck with your workshop. Sounds like a great one.

BTW, have you ever thought about writing a book about painting in series? It'd be a dilly, for sure!
