Circles and squares

This painting was finished up at the begining of this week. I don't paint these big'sih square ones often, but I really enjoy myself when I do. That is assuming I can make the composition work, and I think this one does.

The contrasts between circles and squares is very effective to me, the square painting and squares from the rug pattern, contrasting nicely the circle of the table with the circular composition and even the circle designs in the table cloth.  Makes me happy to paint it!

Workshop & show in Warm Springs

I traveled over to Bath County in Virginia for my show at Warm Springs Gallery. The show was actually half way through, but this was a date that worked best for myself and the gallery. We had a great turn out and also ran a nice little mini-workshop (13 people) at the beginning.
