We arrived home from wonderful Santa Fe, on Monday, where there was snow on the ground, and temps in the 20's. In CA we've had weather in the high 60's with flowers on the fruit trees, and green everywhere. I felt like we came home to spring. Rain is expected soon, so this is temporary. It felt so good! I went for a walk, went to the store, and bought some flowers, painted, and here we are!

The title of Laurel's workshop was, " Still Life Alla Prima". The translation of Alla Prima is "first time". The concept is to complete a painting in one sitting, or all at once. This is a valuable lesson for me, and something that I need to work on. Because of this, my new resolve is to complete a painting at once. This post is a small, 6X8, which I was able to complete fairly quickly. I did this as a warm up for a larger painting soon to follow. My goal is to complete a single larger paining in one session. I am excited about challenging myself. Stay tuned for more!
