Bridgeport Courthouse

A 2 day painting

I've been wanting to concentrate on paintings from reference photos I took earlier in the year. Here's day 1.


And I came back today and worked into it more. I always see Edward Hopper when looking straight from the street like this. I'm not sure it's finished but will let it rest for the week end.

My studio

I have the nicest studio on earth. The view is amazing but the light is also wonderful. I started a study of my African Violet's and some colored bottles that I love to paint

Wednesday afternoon in the studio

I had time between classes and found a bunch of radishes at Ralph's. I've done this one before but it's been years. Going outside tomorrow so this is my warm up!
