The cold has arrived in this part of the country! Perfect day to stay warm and work on some of my still life paintings. Except for my dog Clancy who wants to go out every five minutes and get the studio cold, he doesn't get it!
Oh well he is a great companion but a bit spoiled.
I took this picture at an Antique show in the fall ,I just loved how the light shined on the pitcher,I had fun painting it . I have done many still life paintings over the years , but mostly watercolors, many have been published in cards and magazines.
