Still Life in Grotto

Still Life in Grotto
Originally uploaded by linfrye
We arrived safely home last night; unpacked, did laundry, caught up with C and the cats, and while mom and C enjoyed "The Sound of Music', I enjoyed a bit of quiet time at the art table.

We took down the Christmas decorations, and I have a few errands to run today. I'm feeling a bit guilty for not finding the time to do the work I brought home from school ...Mercy, returning to work is going to be mighty hard ... meantime, I'm planning to paint during my last week of vacation as often as I can -- it's become an obsession!! LOL

I love the plants drooping over the stonework of the grotto!!! Glad you're home safely and have done all your chores. Now you can just enjoy your mom and the painting. I'm hoping to head home from Maine tomorrow morning if the weather is clear. I've had the internet available but haven't posted anything from up here. Enjoy!

Beautiful! Rich juicy color and that nice halo of light behind the urn. Two thumbs up!

Lin, I'm exhausted just reading about your travels and other doings.
:-D You amaze me! This is lovely!

Lin, your painting and sketches are absolutely stunning! It would be hard for me to pick a favorite, I tell ya!
Please take a look at my blog, I got a surprise for you! I tried to e-mail you, but I don't know if you got it?
Big hugs,
Wezz -

Forget the work; paint while you can! The work will be there on the day you return and no one else will have worked over their holiday either (ask me how I know LOL).

Glad you had a good trip and visit with your daughter.

What a gorgeous grotto! I imagine there are a lot of these in Italy. You've really done an outstanding job on this -- the color, the background -- oh how I love your new backgrounds since your last class!
