I feel fine

This was the demo I did at my workshop last Friday.  We focused on painting simple still life pieces. I titled this painting after a James Taylor lyric. It is funny how it coincides with the short story I would like to tell.  Thursday afternoon and early Friday morning before the workshop participants arrived, I was doing a little practice / warm up painting.  I painted two scrapers.  ( I scrubbed them out) Not a good feeling when these folks were paying to come learn from me.  I was pretty shaken but felt that if I slowed down and listened to the the information I was sharing with them that I would be fine.  I was teaching to the teacher. It all worked out and I had a very talented group.  I am not able to show you how well they did because we had a rainy Saturday and did not go out and take photos.  Glad we got a group photo on Friday.
This piece is painted on an 11 x 14" canvas.
