"Striped Pumpkin w/ Curlies" & workshop photos - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

And now a final recap from my advanced workshop in Jacksonville. On the fifth day we worked with reflections - we each had a piece of glass that we put under our setups, got it up to around eye level, and painted the setup and the reflections of the setup in the glass (see example). Though I completely forgot to get pictures of that, I did get quite a few from our foray into larger work on the fourth day:

And here are a few of them in the back room smiling after I caught them gossiping about which were the better paintings and which were #%*&!. Ok, not really. Not at all. But check out that pile of still life stuff! And that wasn't even all of it!

And here they are collectively. My crazy (awesome) kids ... minus Wendy (where were you?!).

This workshop sounds like it also has a lot of useful lessons! Will you plan more advanced ones?

Carol, I am bidding on your little pumpkin on eBay, and I hope I win! It is adorable. I have bid on several other paintings of yours, and I have yet to win one :(

I would love to take one of your workshops. My art teacher suggested that I follow your blog, and I am enjoying it so much! Any chance you will be coming to Alabama next year? If not, I will have to travel!
