red grapes

My final painting for the workshop was this little sprig of grapes. I spent about 30 minutes working with different objects to get a composition I liked.

It was good to know that others have to take a long time to get set-up too.

If I don't feel inspired by the set-up, the fun goes out of the painting process. And that is what I have found to be the point of painting...not the product, but the experience of painting.


  1. Jan - I remember those grapes you did at the workshop! so nice. light shining right through them, too!

  2. Jan, I love all of your workshop paintings. And your blog is just beautiful. Keep up the great work! :)
