These 2 made a happy pairing. Yupo again, small, maybe 6x6. And the colors are almost springlike. Optimistic me!
Yesterday 3 of my favorite woman came for lunch and declared my carrot cake a favorite. I had been to our local farmer's market in the morning and purchased pea sprouts, sunflower sprouts, and sugar spinach grown in a greenhouse....so very crisp and full of flavor. I made my special sunflower seeds to add to the salad and then picked fresh watercress from the spring area up the hill. Fresh watercress in February. Unheard of before this year! After dining we went to Studio Place Arts to hear a great talk and slide show on Van Gogh and Gaughan....not the usual information. I always learn things when Bob Manning holds my attention. Then we went farther south to Chelsea for the Bread and Puppet performance on Dirt Cheap Money at the Town Hall. What a terrific outing and we didn't even have to leave the state. We all felt strengthened from our shared time.
This oil painting feels more finished from the work today. The photo is not the best of it alas...I'll have to do a do over. The title tickles me "The Idea that Sleeps Just Under the Surface" I was pleased with the painting which took place today. I didn't start anything new but I improved and finished several pieces.
