Studio Time...

...and a sketchbook pomegranate study.
Actually, these dried pomegranates were snipped from a
bush right outside the studio...
and included a small bulbous grey spider
which crawled out
of the pod painted in the lower right corner.
I am NOT a fan of spiders..
so he was "wisked" from the scene immediately!
I went with
paint straight in...no pencil...and added some ink flourishes
as decorative highlights.

Another day in artistic paradise?
Ahh...You betcha! :)

until
it is considered from the outside.”
