"Plate of Peaches"
I am especially pleased with this painting. I wanted capture the fuzzy character of the peaches without attempting photorealism; I think I succeeded. This also went together fairly quickly without revisions; that's what I hope will happen someday with all my paintings. In the meantime, I learn from all the corrections and attempted improvements. I've been looking at the archives of some of the daily painters who've been doing this for years. The difference a thousand or so of these little babies can make is striking- as well it should be! I'm excited to see what it will do for my art if I just stick with it and trust the process.
