I meant to practice painting metal, but the flower was already in the vase and I decided to keep it. I want to paint some more metal objects and start drawing more regularly. This painting is oil on masonite and it's 8x10." $100.00 plus s/h.
While painting this picture I listened to Ha Jin's book, A Good Fall. This is a dour book of short stories that are read by different readers. The stories are realistic portrayals of Chinese people who've emigrated to the states and their circumstances. I'll finish listening to the cds, but I won't rush out to get another of his books.
Happy new year!
