White Spider Mums 12x12

Just picked up the ole hammer and started hitting myself on the head again this morning. Here's my setup in front of what we call our bird window. Using natural light I am actually designing the painting as I go. It just happened that way but it's a good lesson. Had to make a run to the store for some more lemons and some plums and some cat food. Here are a few enticing 'details'. I always have a vase of white spider mums in the house. I've never painted them though. Too scary ;)

I've been too long away from visiting. Too involved to do anything but keep my nose to the grindstone. Thanks for showing your painting space. With all that beautiful light, I'd grab the space by the bird window for keeps.
