Yesterday I decided to paint something simple. Not a flower or a glass or fruit. Just a spoon in a bowl sitting on a folded newspaper. Nice and simple. Ha! I could not believe how difficult this was to paint. It all started with that ellipse of the bowl. I couldn't get it right. And then there was the newspaper. Phew! Oddly, it was that lovely red square bending around the newspaper fold that kept me pushing onward.
