Good Enough to Eat

The East Beach Art Show was very nice on Saturday. The homes were beautiful and some of them are right on the beach.

I brought some of my oils including Good Enough to Eat. I created these apples about two years ago. They were so much fun to paint. Mixing the reds and greens without getting mud was somewhat of a challenge. The whole time I was working on it my husband kept saying they look good enough to eat. Hence the name.

I really miss oil painting. For the past year I have been concentrating on watercolors. They have been taking me to some very exciting places and I have certainly been enjoying the journey. I feel that my learning has been accelerated and I'm pretty satisfied with the work I've been producing. But they consume my time and along with the rest of my schedule (teaching, art groups, art shows etc.) I feel like there is very little time left to explore anything else. But oil is like an old friend that I really need to visit soon.
