Very hot today so worked on painting of pears.  After struggling with colors of pears being too cool and green I remembered that my brushes must not be clean enough and it was impacting my color.

Trio of Treats

Today's exercise in painting

Outdoor Setup

I made the pochade box from Tom Brown's plans.  So quick and easy to set up.  Now if I could only paint the hibiscus.  Seem to struggle with flowers sometimes.  I will keep trying although in the Texas heat, the plein air sessions are limited between dips into the pool to cool off. 

Half Full

Wanted to try this little red bottle.  Difficult with the strange top to it but it is close.

Odd Little Jug

This little jug has an almost flower like spout. I enjoyed using the orange against the blue jug.

Kitchen Treaures

Today I sent off my registration for the Lone Star Art Guild annual convention show in July.  I am entering this painting as it won a ribbon in my local art league judged show thus allowing me to enter the show.  This years convention is close to home so looking forward to attending.
