If you have been reading Don Hatfield's blog you will understand why I wanted to change this still life that I painted last year for our home. My goal was to add sky, landscape and a figure to this ho-hum painting making myself a more well rounded painting artist. . . . . I'm pretty much well rounded already physically. The figure didn't make it into the painting and hopefully that will happen in the next still life plus. Today was the day for taking the painting on the left out of the closet where it's been for several months and work on it. The plan was to make it better and though I do like it a little more, I'm also painfully aware of the errors. For one thing having two light sources was not accomplished well but I've declared victory and the painting is going to hang on the wall in the master suite where I intended it to be all along. The NORA KASTEN Website has many paintings of different genre.
