I painted the flowers first, using a large brush, and then I added other elements to break up the backround space.

Here are some of my finished workshop pieces. Following Robert Burridge's suggestion these paintings on paper have been mounted on stretched canvas. I used inch and a half deep stretcher bars and painted the sides and part of the top to match the paintings and then adhered them with the Minwax Polycryl. Then I gave them a really good couple of coats of varnish. Now there is no need to put them behind glass.

I have been working in a number of different mediums all at the same time recently. And now they have all come finished at once. Here is a set of dinnerware that I have made for my friend Tom. He selected a tropical
"fiesta ware" motif. If you want a set of your own, a 3 piece place setting, dinner plate, salad plate and bowl, is $120 per place setting.
Other things I have been working on include silk scarves, wholesale orders, and finishing the workshop paintings. I'll show those things later.
Everyone have a great day.
