Catching Up

Life has settled into a semblance of routine, and I'm catching up on a backlog of orders.

A heat wave makes it impossible to paint outdoors, so I'm in the studio, finishing up paintings from photos I took on site as I painted the starts in the field.

Etika's Garden - No. 2

I first painted Etika's back yard with the old cow shed and it went easy.

This one however, of the front of the house, became a sort of a storytelling collage of important elements in the garden's history, and took some figuring out.

Note the blue spider gate, and the Irises, which are quite famous in Binyamina :)

I painted a color sketch on location when it was all in full bloom. Now the heat has dried everything, but the flowers are commemorated in oil paint.

Michaeli's Car Shop

I had a flat tire and went to Michaeli's Car Shop to get a pair of new wheels.

While I was there, I offered to paint the shop as part of the 100 paintings series, and they were happy to participate.

I came back a few days later, in the midst of a horrible allergy attack, but I really wanted to do the painting.

I set up at the coffee table off to the side, Eyal made me a mint tea (it is a village!), and I painted the shop.

I enjoyed it immensely! Who knew garages were so full of color?

I also loved the bit of green woods showing through the big doors.
