"Red Onion" by Astrid Paustian
Brushing up on some painting skills. I am taking still life painting classes with Colorado painter Jake Gaedtke since December, and it is a lot of fun. Jake is a gifted artist and teacher, who generously shares his knowledge and experience with his students. Painting from life is an invaluable learning experience. It is honest, direct, and requires close observation. I hope the experience gained painting these little objects will reflect in my larger works.
