Hello World! I am back. It has been a wonderful break. Now I am recharged and ready to work again. As a matter of fact, I have resumed my busy life several days ago. Three days ago. I went to Fredericksburg, TX again attending a workshop by one of my most admired master artists: Sherrie McGraw. Without seeing her and David Leffel's masterpieces of still life paintings, I can't imagine I paint still life today. I am so excited that I can study with Sherrie again. My posting for today is one of paintings I did at her workshop. Can you see some of Sherrie's influence in it? I have a well defined intention when I attended her workshop: I want to know how she sets up and creates such a dramatic effect in her paintings. Here is what I have learned (I think): CONTRAST. Please contemplate on this word, your painting will be improved dramatically.

Coincidentally, This Sherrie's workshop has been documented by American Artist's Workshop Magazine. I don't know exactly when the article will be out, but you will see it in the near future.

Sorry, but I prefer your paintings. I don´t like so realistic paintings. However Mcgraw is very good at drawings.

I watched your utube video and was intrigued with your ability and brushwork! I love your work. I am familiar with Sherrie McGraw's work and wish I could have attended the workshop too! I really like the painting you did +and can see Sherries' infamous use of light working into your piece.
I look forward seeing more of your paintings!!!
