This 12 X 16 oil painting was painted at a workshop I attended this weekend. The workshop started at 9:30 a.m. and ended at 4 p.m. Six and half hours of painting... I was physically and mentally exhausted. There were 15 students in a large sunlit studio with skylights painting about five still life set ups. There was a competition to get there early and get the best easel and choice of still life that I was not aware of and ended up in the back. This still life wasn't my first choice, but I'm happy about the workshop and painting with such a talented group of artists. Next time I will get there early and be prepared to be competitive. In the end I love this painting and the experience.
