This is another plein air painting in the PAA member show. I was studying Richard Schmid at the time. I admire Richard's style a lot.
Well, I have not painted any still-lifes for quite a few days. After the New Year, my daily-painting exercise has shown a trend of slowing down. I think it is normal. I admit that I pushed it a little too hard on my art practice last year, because I wanted to know how far I could go in a year as an armature artist. I felt good about what I have done, but I also owed a debt to my family and my health. For this year (if we are talking about my new year resolution), I want to learn more to be a "human being" instead of a "human doing", and make my art into my life more harmoniously. I will emphasize on improving the quality of my paintings, and bring better work for your evaluation in the near future.
