Rose Studies

I was watching an interview with an artist who was having a show at The Whitney (sorry, can't remember his name) who said very humbly that he was never sure about the quality of his work. Artists just have to live with these concerns. I believe it requires faith in ourselves to keep going. Here he was with a show at The Whitney and still worried about his work!! Not only do we have to face blank canvases we have to deal with uncertainties as a normal mode of working.
We are a strange and wonderful group!

Solo Garlic

I don't know if you'll be able to see the background color; it's a very light purple. I may try another one with different table color. Not sure if this is too neutral or if it needs brighter color.
Also want to try a few cloves instead of a whole piece. Trying to get a good composition, so far haven't figured it out yet. Tomorrow may be a good day to get the composition figured out even if it is July 4th!
