I made my goal by about 30 minutes, or close enough to meet it “in the spirit in which it was made.” My goal last Wednesday was to complete 3 small pieces by midnight Mt. time Sunday (tonight). I’ve gotten two and 3/4 done.
I wanted to get a few new ones added to my “coffee” show at Wild Oates in Glendale. I set up a still life with interesting backlit compositions. Turns out the dark mug and all those shadows plus the dark coffee were too much. Had to lighten it. So I dumped the coffee and poured the milk.
Here’s the first of 3 “Milk Mugs”. This blue one was actually the 3rd that I did, but I really like it. It just flowed off the brush so easily; practically painted itself! I love it when it does that.
