It was my turn to lead the group and I chose to bring a set up. I was anxious to see how it would be to paint in the new light. I brought in a few luscious tomatoes, garlic cloves and a small bottle with a few flowers in it. I had spend quite a bit of time the night before getting my paints ready, packing my art bag with all my supplies, deciding exactly what to bring for the set up so, I was anxious to start painting but wanting and doing are two different things. I spent lots of time drawing and redrawing, rubbing out and restarting but it wasn't happening. I did finally get the bottle in the shape and size I wanted but that was it. At first I was pretty discouraged but then I really thought about it and realized it didn't matter if I didn't paint something I considered worthwhile what mattered was that I was here with my friends and I was painting.
Here is something I did last spring, when the muse was still with me.
