During a previous meeting of the Pieces of 8 painting group I challenged everyone to do a painting in 30 minutes. This week I challenged them to do one in only ten minutes. We put flowers, fruit, and an onion on a table and we each painted one object in ten minutes. Then we turned the table so we each had a different vantage point and did it again. We did five paintings this way, and it was wonderful practice in so many ways. This was my first painting, and my best one.
