Reflections were very suttle on these dishes and I was drawn to the pattens  the shaded areas made.   Was the meal over?  Hmmmmmm.......just wondering about the conversation.

Size: 11"x8"
Medium:  Soft (chalk) Pastel on Wallis sanded paper.

This was my still life set up  demonstrating "A Simple Still Life"  for the Tassel Ridge Winery Pastel Workshop held April 30th.  We had a Great time and all those that attended left with beautiful works of their own. 
The space we held this event in is ideal for conducting classes.  Not only did all those attending walk away with beautiful works of their own, we were treated with a wonderful gourmet lunch, and  a tour of the facility by the owner.  Of course, there was plenty of time after the workshop for wine testing and gift shopping.
I'm looking forward to the next time I lead a creative workshop at Tassel Ridge.
