challenges, challenges ...

This is my first attempt at a solution.
Normally I post directly to Blogger from Picasa--that is the only way I post, in fact: it's easy--I upload and edit my photos there.
These photos are from the photos file on my computer, which, in all honesty, I hardly ever look at--I don't know how to edit the photos there, and they're stored all haphazardly (or perhaps I should say I have stored them all haphazardly ...)

So here they are, unedited, my first two tries, both unfinished, at a deceptively difficult challenge at Daily Paintworks: paint a white object on a patterned cloth.

Wow--these are great, Laura! You don't usually do lots of reds, do you? I like 'em!!!

That top one is especially fabulous, Laura! Love those reflections on the white pitcher.

I love these. I'm so sorry you've been having trouble. I edit my stuff in iPhoto, and Preview on the Mac. iPhoto is a million times easier than Photoshop. But maybe you aren't working on a Mac.

What to do? Buy a Mac.

Gorgeous, gorgeous paintings. Nice to have you back however you are doing it.
