A Page in my SketchbookThese tiny pumpkins were sitting on the window sill in my studio and the early morning sky was very dark blue behind them. A few days later, I painted the pears that were on the kitchen counter while I was getting dinner. Yes, I did paint them while I was getting dinner - you know, when the mood strikes. Remember, some of the pigments are toxic, so try not to be too sloppy with them in the kitchen. Remember what happened to Vincent Van Gogh. No, not the ear thing, the ingesting of paint thing. Too much lead white pigment in his kitchen.
Remember, we aren't after a finished product or a masterpiece each and every time we pick up our art supplies, but somewhere in all that playing and experimenting, we'll get one.
