Daily Practice - Mess of Pole Beans

First Mess of Spring Pole Beans

Taking a break from the big black dog, I received these pole beans last night - they'll be in the pot today! Drew these from life, but forgot to time myself. I've kinda dropped my daily practice here lately and that's not good. These are my first effort to get the ball back in the air. Once again, the "balance" thing eludes me. I'm beginning to think it's a myth anyway!

  1. Re: A "mess" of pole beans.... your Southernness is showing! :-)

    Love the beans...wish I had your delicate style of painting. Sigh!

  2. :•) I am what I am!!

    I think you also have a very delicate style/touch so I'm not sure what you're referring to!

  3. they are so fresh and lovely, beautifully rendered, I feel like when you take time to draw or look at your food it tastes really amazing!?!

  4. They look good enough to throw in a pot and eat!! Breaks are a good thing.

  5. ...you made me laugh. If "balance" is a myth, that would explain why I can't seem to find it either. (In Cincy, we would say a mess of beans too...).
