This is a 12"X10" painting that I have been working on this week. It is one of those paintings that halfway through  I start questioning why I ever started it. I am about three quarters finished and still asking myself the same question. Some of those glass colors are hard to make. I don't think I could do it without the phthalos. I will post what I consider to be the finished painting whenever that happens.

I am slowly working on organizing my studio and this was the first chore. Washing all the fabric and dishes. Then trying to arrange them in some sort of order by color. I don't know if all still life painters are like me but I collect all this stuff and only use a small percentage of it over and over.

KARIN JURICK is selling very sturdy tabletop easels on her blog if any of you are looking for one. I have one and love it. They are handmade by her guy Bret.

I am loving this! I think you could stop now. The arrangement is very striking, and the colors are gorgeous. I really like the shadow on the wall. I think you could call this one finished, Anita!

I agree with Virginia . . . stop! You did a ffantastic job with this, Anita. The reflections of the green bottle and apple depicted through the turquoise bottle are especially nice.
