Black Friday sounds depressing so I'm changing it to Orange Friday and posting a painting called "Orange Cloth." I painted this still life in David Shevlino's April 2012 workshop at the Easton Studio & School in Easton, Maryland. The most important lesson I came away from David's workshop with is I can use large brushes and still get detailed, interesting paintings. Using a larger brush has helped me not get too bogged down in the details when I start a painting. Now if I can just remember that rule!
