I started this painting this summer, left it unfinished until recently. The lady wearing the striped dress caught my eye while out shopping. Her outfit with the horizontal lines is remarkable amidst the chaos of the market.

  8. Dear Celia,
    I love very much this market scene. I like your impressionistic rendering in this painting. And the colors are used beautifully in each item in the painting. You did a good job in that striped dress.

I painted this from a photo reference provided by my talented friend Cristina Mihailescu (see her beautiful works here) .  I believe this bird is a Lesser Goldfinch .

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!

I started this painting last year and set it aside for a while.  I worked from a cell phone image I took while preparing breakfast.

My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast with a poached egg, I sketched it after Christmas. It keeps me full until lunch time.
