Even though the lovely citrus fruit for my still life has long since shriveled and rotted, I have the photo of it to work from. I feel so rusty from months away from the easel. My still life felt like a good place to start today. I started this work painting from life so to finish it from a reference photo there were some drawing problems to solve. Overall it was a fun day in the studio. It felt like I am finally going to get into the routine of daily painting again!
