It happened on the way to class. Flowers for my painting class were chosen, ready to check out, when I glanced in the direction of the colorful desserts in the case. Hmmm and Mmmm at the same time. A change of plan as I chose an assortment of goodies. It was enjoyable and a challenge to paint and our theme for the night was we eat what we paint. Next week it will be wine, bread and cheeses. Never to late to join the class.

This was a painting I completed for my class. It was the first meeting, so we actually painted from a photographic reference. Not ideal, but lessons to be learned, especially in editing. They got a great start and I will look at the end products tomorrow when we meet on the actual canal and paint en plein-air.

This was the painting I completed at the New Harmony Paint-Out last April. It won a merit award, but after hanging it in my gallery and seeing it every day, I decided to go back into it with major changes in the sky. I also increased the darks in the wooded area.
