I continue my studies with still life paintings. Setting up the still life is an art in itself! I bought these little pumpkin gourds and wanted to get as many brush miles on them as I can before I tire of them, so here they are in a second painting. I took out an old painting of Miniature Pumpkin gourds done in 2008 to see if my skills have improved and I am happy to say....YEAH! double YEAH! steadily improving! at least I'm making some progress however slow it may seem.
