"Enjoy Our Complementary Amenities," 6x8, oil on canvas board

Busy week, this. We had 24 people at the house for Thanksgiving, which affected how much painting and posting I could do.

I'm still digesting what I learned at the Tom Brown workshop and will write more on that later. But while I was at the workshop and in a painting frenzy, I did a couple of pieces at the hotel where I was staying. That was a bit of a challenge, since it's hard to find paintable things at a hotel. What, you should paint the shampoo bottle? So I used items from the snack bar.

I'm kind of pleased that the tea bag looks like a tea bag here. Of course, when you're painting from life, life keeps changing, and I believe I had to refresh the water in the tea when it got too dark.


  1. Hi Connie! I can't believe you painted in your hotel room after we painted outdoors all day! That's enthusiasm. : )

    Great job on the tea bag. I imagine it's difficult to paint a cup from that view point.

  2. Connie,
    You've been tagged! I got tagged by Mike Bailey, now I'm tagging 5 artists with blogs. Come to my blog to see what it's about.
    Hope you're well. : )
