I painted with the Thursday afternoon group at SCG Art Club yesterday and managed to get a good start on this sepia garlic painting. My friend, Carol (Dabs) Holt from the online Watercolor Workshop did this painting a few years ago and gave me permission to copy it. She got hooked on sepia about the same time I did. I am finally getting around to trying this for my own kitchen. I like the way the bulbs are sort of "emerging" from the shadows. I need to add more darks, but it is getting there.

Tomorrow is the SCG Art Club's open house during the Oktoberfest festival. I will be selling raffle tickets all day and, hopefully, selling lots of my paintings!

I finally found a few moments whilst camping here at Patagonia
Lake AZ State Campground enjoying
all of the waterfowl on our ninth
anniversary AND talking lots of photographs to use as references
for my artwork, as well. YOU are
definitely capturing the true essence of your granddaughter's
personality in your portraiture...
keep up the good work. Blessings...Pat Crosswhite Spencer

Thanks, Pat! Aubrey is truly a joy to paint. I feel a different joy when painting her, though, than when painting anyone else....must be my heart contributing to her paintings!

Thanks for looking at the blog, especially while enjoying Patagonia, that is a pretty area and I, too, would like to see the waterfowl santuary there.
