Nothing like cramming in some painting time when you know you are going to be away from the easel for awhile. Our grandson's school is closing for a couple of weeks because of a swine flu case diagnosed in his building, so the working parents need help during this unexpected "vacation" from school. Knowing that I would be busy with other things for awhile and feeling the need to keep up the "almost-daily" painting, I quickly tried to capture these two flower pots from our backyard. I guess being in a hurry sent me back to old habits, so the paintings are not as loose as I would like. That will still be my goal when I get back "at it"!!!
By the way, do you know how hard it is to photograph a black background? These took numerous attempts, but it looks like I avoided most of the glare!
