New Works: "Tomatillos and Terracotta"

This lovely new painting started out as a demonstration piece for Charles' recent still-life workshop. We both liked it so much at the end of the evening that he brought it back to the studio after the workshop and worked on it for a little while longer. (16 x 20, oil on panel)

He had originally planned some other type of fruit to accompany that beautiful terracotta vase, but when we stopped by the grocery store on the way to the demo that afternoon "just to see about other options" those vibrant green tomatillos struck him as perfect. Always be willing to change at the last minute for something better!
