Treats for Tea, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
oil on board, 5"x7"
Tea on Friday was great fun, with a nice group showing up and enjoying the French paintings. Both Joanne and I were happy they were so well received, and that several sold. I was so pleased that artist friends from Naples also made the trip to Marco for tea.
There were two winners for the French Artists matching contest. Joan won a sketching set and Dolores a post card, and Judy was delighted to win the framed post card drawing.
I'm getting more comfortable with painting in oils, and really enjoying a new medium. Not ready to give up the acrylics, but sliding the paint around a little easier than my first few. Treats for Tea was fun to paint, and I made special effort not to overwork it. Not easy, but I put down the brush when I started getting fussy with it!
