Early Spring Bunch

"Early Spring Bunch"
14x11 oil on linen panel

It's been a busy couple of weeks in and around the studio!  Since my last post, I've taught several classes and have been painting as much as possible in between.  Last weekend I was down in Zumbrota Minnesota at Crossings Art Center teaching a 2 day color temperature workshop using the still life as our resource to study from.  It was seriously a dedicated group of painters.  I've said it before, and I'm sure will say it again, but it's SO inspiring and rewarding to work with such great people and also to watch their growth and discoveries with their painting!  We painted from fresh flower arrangements like this one I painted here.  Only this piece I did at my studio a couple of days before the workshop to get my head where it needed to be.  (I also did a full demo at the workshop that I will post later.)  
Hope you enjoy the piece!
