Acrylic 12x9" In the process of sketching everything out my still life died. Let's paint them anyway, right? This was painted from my couch :)

Thank you Maureen :) I am still learning how to paint with values, this one is pretty high key, but I like that the arrangement is unusual.

Well done. I like it a lot. It is honest and intimate and totally delightful.

Nice work. And real, lol. I'm sure I'm not the only one who leaves wilted flowers sitting there for too long.

Did you all notice the shoes? That was one of the last things I put in. If I had not approached them with shapes of color in the negative space ... this is one of the things that I think shows growth in an artist, that not everything needs detail. Lately I have been trying to figure out what matters, what supports a painting and how to create the stars as part of the sky.

EDIT: thanks to all the new visitors :)
