New Painting: Garlic Olive Oil

Garlic Olive Oil, 2009, oil on canvas, 16 x 13 inches
I must be crazy but I've been working on this painting non stop. It has been effortless, I was just on a roll and did very little to stop myself. So much that I haven't gotten any sleep tonight. For the first time in years I've pulled an all nighter working on my art. Think I haven't done this since college! Oh boy am I going to feel hurt at work in a few hours. But it feels good, I completed the first painting of the year. I needed this since I've been having problems with the landscape I started at the end of last year. I'm afraid I'll be fighting with that one for a while. This still life came very natural, I didn't plan much, colors just seemed to flow right out. I have set myself some goals for this year in terms of my art and I'm working hard to accomplish them. So here's to a good start!
