Chrysanthemum with Fruit

Here's a still life painting started last week as a 'demo' for a large workshop class, and then finished up at home.  It's painted in a 'plein air' style,  concentrating mostly on values, edges, and gradual color build up, rather than using a tightly drawn and detailed approach.
I plan on painting some more elaborate and larger still life's soon, with a little more flair, and hope to share some of them with you via this blog site.
Also, coincidently,  I'm planning a (3) day workshop on still life painting at Anita Elder's "Elder Ridge Studio" in Dahlonega, GA, in just a few months.  I'll let you know the details as soon as it's scheduled.
 As for now, here's a few Johnny Mercer lyrics to close out this November episode of the JBG blog....

The falling leaves
Drift by my window
The Autumn leaves
of red and gold.......

so long for now,
John
