Simply Red


On Hold for Trimble Court Artisans in Old Town Fort Collins, CO (8x8in on canvas panel)

Right after my friend came to watch me paint the scene from yesterday, my little 11 year old student came over for a lesson.  I got her excited about these Christmas bulbs and she picked the red one to try together – good choice.  She was also brave enough to try the polka dots on the ground paper!  I wish I would have taken a photo of hers, it turned out so lovely.  She has this very Henri Matisse feel about her paintings, in his paint days.

I’m hoping to do a bunch of 5×5 minis of these ornaments and light bulbs for the gallery for the holidays too, keep a look out.
