Shaker Still Life #18

4"x 6" Original Watercolor

I was just at the Shaker Village so I have lots
of new Shaker subjects to paint.  You know I
love them!!

I got a new pair of glasses and everything seems
so much sharper and brighter.  I think it even
reflects in my painting.

Another fast day... I put the final coat on my
windows on our cottage.  Playing handyman
is not my best role!  Then I was off to market,
then pick up the order of black frames.  Linda
plans to have a full display for this weekend at
Heart of Lancaster Arts & Craft Show in Manheim,
PA.  Paint my blog and dinner with the family.
Then off to the hospital to visit one of my favorite
students, in hopes of cheering her up.  After the blog
I have glass to cut down... I think it will be a late night!

Statue Progress
I am simply taking my time and filling in the
background washes.  The key is to let it dry!
Slow down and enjoy the process of building
the color.  The 1st wash on the top is finished
and I am working on the greens.

Your Shaker painters are always fabulous. This statue piece is already looking truly glorious.
