This blog traces my influences, studio practice, learning, and teaching of art.

"Milk And Honey"

All of the objects were painted from life except the Egyptian statue which was painted from a photo. I remember painting this at Belvoir Terrace where I sometimes did painting demonstrations during class. One student suggested I add the apple slice to symbolize the sweetness of life. Another student was intrigued by my technique of using two colors simultaneously to paint pitted stone texture. "Aha! I knew it was a trick." she said.
