Mark Your Calendars!

 "Quiet Plums"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas

This is the first time I've used natural light on a still life in my new studio. The late afternoon light is a tranquil blue coming through my windows - especially on drizzly, overcast days like a few we've had recently. And yes, this gray swirly cloth is a repurposed curtain.
I'm all smiles (and stomach butterflies) about an exciting event coming up soon - my first solo show in nearly three years! The Gallery at the Watershed isn't a humongous space, but my paintings are small. My point is, there's going to be a TON of work on display. Which is good, because I paint a lot.

Mark your calendars! And if you can, please do come to the opening. The show will be a mix of still life, figure, and portrait, and you might even spot one or two of my models in the crowd. The Gallery is hosting several fun events around this show, so stay tuned!

I clicked thinking this was of blueberries in a very tiny cup. ;) Quiet plums indeed - cool and lovely.
Congrats on the show Sarah! I'm overdue for a trip to Eugene so calendar is hereby marked. ♥
