Sedona Light: Still Life with Teacup and Blueberries

Private Collection

After spending a wonderful week painting in Sedona at the Abbey Ryan workshop, it is nice to be home! I have a lot of catching up to do today, but I wanted to share this painting with you. My focus for the week was painting highlights. Commit and simplify.

The weather in Sedona was perfect. Temps in the low 70s and partly cloudy skies. Mark and I enjoyed hiking, sightseeing and celebrating his birthday. Tons of fun!

Have a great week! Happy painting!

Still Life with Handmade Bowl and Cherries

Private Collection

Recently, my very sweet and thoughtful niece, Holly, gifted me with this beautiful, handmade bowl. I love it, and I couldn't wait to paint it. So, when I saw that cherries were in season, they felt like a fun fit for it.

This week, I am planning and packing for Abbey Ryan's workshop in Sedona. It will run from May 18 through May 22, 2015. I am so looking forward to a week of painting, painterly fellowship and beautiful Sedona. I will try to take lots of photos for you.

Have a great Monday!
