Figs and Toile
5" x 7"
oil, acrylic, pencil on illustration board
The perfect ingredients went into this painting that I made this morning: a strong cup of Colombian coffee with a dash of chocolate powder, Sheila Chandra's ABoneCroneDrone on the stereo, and fresh figs from the farmers market. Oh, and a wallpaper sample donated to our student ASID sale for reference. (Don't worry Nancy, I didn't get paint on it, it's still in its wrapper!) All these elements combined make for a wonderful way to shut out the world for a few hours and practice with the oils.
