Honeysuckle in Progress

This is a still life that I began last summer. The work on it stopped when I was moving home. It was resting on a shelf since then until yesterday when I suddenly felt an urge to finish it. In my opinion it is still not there completely, still need to spend some time over the delicate fabrics but I want to put it here in its transition state to remember what it was like when I work on it further. It will be interesting to compare it with the finished version.

Lilly and Harvey - first painting of 2009

Today I have finished the portrait which I have been asked to do before the holidays. Christmas as usually arrived somewhat unexpectedly. I mean when you are waiting steadily for some time you start getting used to this position and then suddenly it's here and you are already standing in the church singing Oh come, Oh Ye Faithful to your heart's content.It was a good Christmas and an unusual New Year in the company of my aunt from Spain. Now it's finally back to work time and here is my first painting marked 2009.
