January/February Still Lifes

Oil on linen

This winter was a slow one for painting - maybe the 55 inches of snow this year and constantly overcast skies were contributing factors.  I will say that I'm much more motivated to paint now that the daffodils have bloomed and the crab apples are showing their stuff against a back drop of spring green and blue skies. 

Above are a few still life studies painted with friends this winter.  Thank goodness for friends or I may not have painted at all!
