Still Life

The old painting muscles are a bit flabby it seems. The still life below was painted on a wood panel, about 13.5 X 20.5 inches and I worked on it until I ran out of steam. Still life paintings are difficult for me in the best of times, but they are good exercise and so worth doing.

I’m working in a smallish space these days. Perfect for comics, but not so ideal as a painting studio. Nevertheless, my goal is to have a canvas up pretty continuously. And now, since I mentioned comics, I should ALSO mention that there is a Zita the Spacegirl short webcomic posted over that the First Second blog. It’s the first ZSG webcomic I have done in ages.

Oh, Christmas, I can hear you coming this way. Don’t hurt me!
