A Picnic of Plums

A Picnic of Plums
July 28, 2008
8" x 10"
Oil on board
It all started with a larger painting that I am starting and I was waiting for my underpainting to dry so I picked up the glass and striped bag and headed to work, then after the kids went to bed at night I was waiting for another layer on that larger painting to dry so I grabbed some plums that are just about ready to melt they are so ripe. I do recommend having someone read a really good book to you while you paint. It really distracts your left brain and keeps it occupied while your right brain can go all out and just create it's heart out. I wasn't thinking at all about the plums I was just seeing and doing, seeing and doing and I really think it shows.
