It was time to paint the kitchen. I changed the color from a sage green to a cheerful blue. It kind of looks ‘beachy’ now. With that in mind, some of the artwork no longer looks good against the color. I have a small blank space that I want to try and fill with a piece of my own art. So what goes well in the kitchen? A still life. Let’s see if I can pull off painting something like this preliminary sketch. Or maybe that’s too cliche…. Hmmm.
Here in the northern suburbs of Philadelphia, the fall foliage was a huge disappointment. The leaves which normally display a lovely variety of warm and brilliant hues, went from green to dried brown before falling off the trees. This painting is my way of making up for it. Thanks to my photographer friend, sonofabeach96 for the inspiration with this photo of his Kentucky farm:
I have put my cool little sketchbook from What Sandra Makes to good use. It’s perfect for pen and ink sketches and doodles. Here’s one I did last night while my cheese steak Stromboli was in the oven. It’s the Philadelphia skyline as seen from the Delaware River waterfront.
