It's Kentucky Derby week in Louisville. The festivities have been building for weeks. This year even the dogwoods have participated!

It may be time to go back to more round fruits/veg's with a few less planes. Still trying to learn how to impart value in the color, you know, how to make orange dark. Add its complement? Shall I go back to monochrome? Here is a shy pepper, turned away with stem peeking.

Yesterday I was inspired by one of the 'daily painters' to begin this work of painting daily a small work. I am told that it is very instructional. Patience and regular effort will I hope bring results. I struggled with this and am not 'happy ' with the results but I do sense that if I keep it up I will get better, er 'happier.'

A local painter and dear lady offers a studio class that I enjoy very much. It is so nice to have a live model and paint with others present. She arranges all that and we four participants pay a small amount for the model. We don't talk much - but enough- because painting and a little music for background is so lovely.
Here is the fruit of two sessions - quick and unfinished but I am happy with it because it was pure pleasure to do.

Leaving Gethsemani several Sundays ago, I turned to this lovely view. One of the readings that morning came to mind as I sketched the scene. "In the land of the living" is the title of this one showing the lovely knobs around the monastery and the road leading home. Spring was in the air but had not shown itself. It was still hiding in those blue hills.
