1143 Standing Guard Acrylic Shawna Lampi-Legaree

Standing Guard, 5×7, Acrylic

Before all the ornaments got put away I set up this cute nutcracker as a simple still life!  Notice the cool background.  Thanks to Trina Rentmeister at Northern Interiors here in Yellowknife I have a fun selection of small sample fabric pieces to use for my paintings!  🙂

I am really pleased that I got the interesting value shift on the background.

 I am one week away from teaching my Drawing 1 Class.  It is going to be fun. The  1 week reminder newsletter went out this morning to remind people that we start next week and what supplies are needed.

Now I am back and working I am sure I will stop by more often to say hello.
