from the david workshop...

11x14 oil on sretched canvas so here's a photo of the scene we were looking at in martinsville...it was a beautiful day and i was trying somewhat of a new pallette - he had us mix several values and all of a suddden it looked like i had cotten candy or ice cream in front of me - all this thick, luscious whipped cream-looking stuff...i kind of went over the top with the color but it was fun and i'm always ready to push myself - new boundaries - plus - after i got home i hated to waste all that paint so i got busy and started a project that i can't post for a while since it will be a christmas present...but the colors were somehow perfect for this new painting! you'll see what i mean later.....meanwhile...we have news - the frenchies next door have been wanting to get a puppy - they've looked and looked and wanted to surprise their 5 kids with a golden since they all adore nellie and they know we have a new puppy coming in a few weeks as a baby sister. anyway they thought they had one lined up to go and pick out in a few weeks but all of a sudden.....the puppy is ready and COMING HOME TONIGHT!!!!! it's so much fun to be in on the surprise!! - (flash- 3 of the frenchies just arrived at the front door looking for scary masks to play a game with their dad - i had to really bite my tongue!!)...anyway - went to a beautiful wedding at 2 this afternoon and now just hanging out waiting to go to the reception at 5:30 - bummer because i can't get into anything that would get me dirty or grimy or sweaty.....which is just about everything i do....
