The weather on our last day of the 4-day workshop with Jon Imber was not condusive to be outside painting. Instead our subject was a floral arrangement brought by my friend, workshop attendee and fiber artist Merill Comeau. This painting is a new direction for me, trying to strip away the non-essentials, be less detail oriented yet compose a compelling painting. For some time I have only been using palette knife when working with oil paints. Jon encouraged me to utilize the brush more. I think he is getting me back on track and in a direction I want to go.
