In December I received my first commission. My mother and father-in-law want paintings for their house in Miami and requested a still life to begin with. We settled on a bowl of apples and oranges and a blue cloth. I did the initial sketch and blocking in before my big break.
Then during my break I began to think I needed to add some movement in the blue tablecloth. Not too much, as the request was to keep the still life as simple as possible.
Still a lot of work to do, but it feels good to be back in the studio painting again.
