found still lifes

(7x11)

(7x11)

(10x14)

I'm taking a little vacation next week--a train ride to Wisconsin, with a two-day stopover in Chicago. I'm riding back to her house with my friend Robin, who, has just departed Tomah, WI, on her way here.
I'm trying to finish up some jobs and get myself ready to take time off--but I'm very bad at it.
I've also been, a bit at a time, trying to clear out a space to paint in. I have a room that I call the art room, but it's actually more of a catchall room.
So I haven't done any painting--maybe I'll get to do some in WI.
In the meantime, here are three still lifes I painted in a wonderful class at the Wayne Art Center in Pa. five or six years ago; found them in a box.

The still lifes are gorgeous!

Have a blast getting away next week. Mmmm, Chicago.

Hope the studio area is ready soon so you will paint. :) All in good time, right? Sometimes we need a break.

Always nice finding old artwork, cool to see how one might have improved. These are very nice, great colours.

Clearing up and out is such a chore. I have been doing the same thing today. The treasures unearthed make it worth while, and these are superb! Loved the little jewels in your last post too. Have a great trip and a good rest.

Looking through the old art work can be bittersweet. I've got some stuff that should be shredded and some that is brilliant. Your examples are brilliant. Best wishes for a good trip.
