49. Aglow

 I finished this little painting (6x6) of a pomelo last week. It was great fun!! And I got to taste a pomelo - they are really good! I took a workshop this fall with Lori Putnam (she is really good, if you ever get the chance to take her workshop, do it!), and she said that the fastest way to improve in painting is to paint from life whenever possible. So, while I consider myself a landscape painter, I am really a fair-weather landscape painter. In winters past, I have painted a lot from photographs and plein-aire studies. But this winter I plan to paint a lot of still lifes! I hope that this will be the first of many!
