I set up a still life in the studio today. This is not something that I ever feel confident about. Should I peel the clementine? Put out the shells? Cut the irises shorter? I did a study of the set up and decided it was fine for a larger painting. The studio light somehow provided me with beautiful color on the walls and in the reflection on the white glass table. I said that the tulip paintings were the last ones going in my April show. But I think these are going too.
