"Look, the Sun!"

Thank you for the great response about our upcoming move and new studio! Ok ok, I'll gush about it! In fact, I'll start a separate blog where I'll post updates (when we get started ... in a few months) about my studio, and I'll put links from here when I get new stuff up for those who might be interested.

I tend to come up with new ideas for paintings in the car or in bed right before I fall asleep. I had an idea recently to do paintings from straight on with stacked bowls and cups, etc. This is the first, but I have done a couple of other larger ones too. I really like them. They have a grounded feel that makes me feel good. Don't ask me why.

Giorgio Morandi

I like anything you do with plates in it.
Several of your recent small paintings have the complexity of your bigger stuff. Nice to see that on a small scale.
Happy New Year!

Thanks you guys! Janett, it's funny you say Giorgio Morandi - a friend of mine recently brought over a book of his to show me. I think that's exactly where I got the idea! I suppose all the original ideas are used up already. : )

Wonderful painting, Carol. I love the little hits of highlights - great composition too.
