Coffee and Cake

Off to the home of a pal of mine today to have some chat and a little painting time. A simple still life set up was the order of the day. The set up may have been simple but the various reflections were anything but simple - so the word that I had running through my head throughout the session was SIMPLIFY. Maybe the simplification was too much as I feel tempted to make adjustments here and there, but I've decided to sleep on it and hopefully resist the temptation.

I envy you your painting buddy. What a delightful way to spend a day. Your concentration on forms and lighting is paying off nicely Mick.

The cake looks good enough to eat Mick. You are on the right track with these paintings. The I'm not a robot is .............. Why have it?

Linda - Thanks, hopefully I'm making some progress.

Ray - Thanks a lot. As for the 'robot' thing it just appeared one day unbidden and I haven't taken the time to find out how to get rid of it.
