Update In Process: Peter's Garden Lunch

Peters Garden Lunch by Sandra Galda
16"x20" oil on gessoed masonite

I am enjoying working on a larger painting, here it is so far!  I included a shot of my workspace.  It is quite nice especially when our daughter is practicing her piano.  If interested in purchasing this, or any of my available art on this blog, contact my email address sgalda@aol.com or use the PayPal button if included in the post. Small works are signed in full on the back of the painting. Thanks for looking, tell me what you think-leave a comment! Paintings by Sandra Galda are copyrighted. Scroll down this page for more art!

Love how the gray sets off the color. Very nice.
Thanks to for showing your set up. I could never paint that close to a fine drapery fabric with out adding in some color of my own.

I love the light and the fresh quality of the paint on the canvas, it is so clear. I wish I could do the same!

This is looking really great. I need to do some larger pieces, too.

Look at this! You have this little tiny VERY NEAT spot with a still life tucked into the corner. Just an easel and a couple of small lamps.
Genius!
Love the painting.

thanks all!!! Dewberry, the drapes were solid white when I first hung them. (actually I sew , line etc. all the drapes in my house..another artistic endeavor).

Mary, my working space can expand and fill more of this large room, it is neat now but has had its messier moments! I somehow backed myself into corner by making my current still life set up for larger works ontop of that slant top desk...so it forces me to move the easel over...but it is comfortable for me now so I will endure. I own some portable metal easels that can be screwed to tops of counters or tables and they provide me with good temporary easels for quicker small paintings while I am using my larger easels for big still lifes. My Carol Marine panel holder works well with a portable easel for smaller panels and my portable metal screw-on easels.

I also have some other easels that stand on floor, but I dont use them unless I am doing several large paintings all at the same time...which rarely happens. When I was painting theater sets I would stand the 8foot tall masonite panels againt the walls in the catherdral ceiling adjacent room and paint them. plastic sheets stapled to walls ina few spots kept the walls from splatter.
