600! Twirl



















SOLD
#600 should be a sugar bowl, I thought this morning. . . but I also thought it could have been a daisy, or a dog (Brie, of course), or a blue vase. Then I thought, #600 wasn't going to paint itself and I was already two cups of coffee into this deliberation. . . I had better do something. . . so, I settled on a little 4x4" (dancing) sugar bowl.

Other News: Went snowshoeing today and stayed upright this time. . .

More News Still: Brie has become the subject of a very special painting by Kimberly Santini, check out "Brie as Odalisque" here. . .

4x4", acrylic

  1. I like this "from the top" perspective, Lisa! I think the deliberation was successful...or maybe it was the coffee???

  4. Why is that we spend so much time trying to decide what to paint instead of just painting.
    I love the sugary colours - and the composition really works for me.
    Congratulations on reaching #600!

  5. This is wonderful- I can just feel the happy dance of the paintbrush, decision made and caffeine kicked in:)
    I tried to see the Brie link and did not work for me either.

  12. congrats on 600! I hope now that Brie is a model she doesn't desert you as assistant. I went to Kimberley's site, what a fab fun painting. Of course your model today is one of my favorites too.

  15. Nice color play, as usual! Very appropriate name too! I always say, "good reason to drink more coffee"!
