My latest oil painting is of a pitcher with pears on a table top.
The teacher's painting was darker; it had more of an old-world vibe. But I prefer a lighter look.

Sometimes when it's too hot to move, I do a jigsaw puzzle at my kitchen table. This is one that Alice gave me; it was in her pile of things destined for her next garage sale.
It has several "shaped" pieces. I worked on those first, then the edges. The hardest part was the last 50 or so - all solid red (maybe a LITTLE variation), with two "outies" and tow "innies".
It's a good exercise in color awareness, if nothing else.
It's now apart and waiting to go back to Alice's stack of stuff.
