Covered the complete canvas with color notes that are quite close to the subject. Made an adjustment on the size relationship between the bowl and the egg shells. After yesterday's painting session my lab ate the egg shells, so had to improvise a bit with two new ones. Hard to get mad at him when he looks at me with those sad eyes, he is too adorable.

This is a new still life painting that is a work in progress, it is 11 x 14 on an Artboard panel. I began laying in paint today after doing a drawing on a grid and using the grid to lay it on the panel. I found an old tube of cobalt violet which is working wonders in the shadows of the cloth. I will post more of this work in the coming days. This painting leans more toward realism as opposed to impressionistic. I find it pleasing to word in this way since I am really drawn more toward art that has a realistic interpretation.

9 x 12 oil on linen panel
Another of my continuing series of paintings from my Route 66 trip. These two sit in an open field next to the Route 66 Motel in Grooms, Texas. They seem to be smiling and telling us "we have some real stories to tell about this ole road."
