A very happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there :)
A little still life for today. I was trying out a slightly different process while I painted this one. I usually lay down a sort of brownish ground and then pencil in my composition on top, well I ran out of lead in my pencil, and since we're still in temp housing there were no other pencils around. So this one was marked in with paint...that always made me nervous before, like I would ruin the painting before I even started. This time it worked very well, I don't think I'll ever go back.
