Still Life


This painting started out as a water colour sketch sometime ago. It's a very peaceful part of our front deck, where we often sit and have breakfast and watch the parrots and finches compete for seed in our bird feeder. I wasn't happy with the sketch as it was, so recently I added pastel and charcoal to give shadows and depth. I think I'm happier with it now.

Very nice, Ro...I wish I could sit with you on your deck and have a good cup of tea. Sounds like a very relaxing place!
