"White Roses and Lemons"
11 x 14 oil on linen canvas panel
I just returned from Atlanta and a workshop with Nancy Franke. She is a fabulous teacher and wonderful painter, and just such a fun and inspiring person to be around. I don't have enough good adjectives to describe how much I got from her and these two days spent painting with her. I have been following her work since I started painting again and have always been interested in the sketchy, loose manner in which she paints. She is a very generous teacher and had us busy and working the entire two days! I not only loved being there with my friends, Judy Nocifora and Kathy Cousart, but also met 15 other people in the workshop also who were nothing but encouraging to each other and also fun to talk and visit with.
This painting is one of the still life paintings we did while there. We painted in groups of four and each group "designed" their own set up. I am not so great at that yet since I have done very little still life painting, so I was happy my cohorts were better than me! I also did a few other paintings there and will post those in upcoming blog posts. Below is a group photo taken on the last day of the workshop.
