daily painting practice - dandelions

This is not a great photo but it gives you the idea of the dramatic lighting I can get now that I changed my studio around. I moved my bookcases to the south wall and now the west light or the north light can be used on my still life setups.

First Pick
oil on masonite

Springtime temperatures are back here in Omaha. We had 70 degree weather two weeks ago but then a cold snap came and killed back all the flowers that were beginning to sprout. The first to recover were these dandelions. The first pick of 2007.
