Pottery and Oranges - oil

I feel that I am making baby steps to getting this oil painting down. It is still struggle and I feel that I do not have enough time to rally get into it. I am starting to talk to friend of mine Sondra about maybe getting a tiny place, where we could paint. It is really my New Years resolution. I find it very hard to paint at home. There is always something to clean, sort, go through and I feel guilty to paint :(

By the way, Laura really liked this painting so I gave it to her. I hope you like it, my dear friend.

Bowl with Citrus - oil

I love to paint lemons. I am guessing it might be because they are yellow, which is my favorite color. The combination of the blue and yellow is just wonderful.

Black Vase - oil

Still struggling with the paint. I think I am putting too much pint on and than I can't control it.

Quick studies with Ray - oil

The other oil class I am taking is with Ray Mendieta. Ray is classically trained and gives us solid basis for painting. There is a lot of people I know in the class. It is fun to see everyone. Class is very hard. We paint two paintings a class each 40 minutes. there is no time for fooling around. I have a disadvantage, I am pretty slow.

Pears and Clay Pot

New Year is here and new classes. I am taking two oil classes. It will be a challenge to adjust to two different teaching styles, but I look at it as an advantage. I will not get stuck with one way to paint. I will have a chance to pick what fits for me.
Here is first painting from Jim's class
