The Still Life by Julie Riker


 I am eager for outdoor painting weather but still not ready to venture outside.  The past week I have dedicated some days to practicing the still life in my studio.  I am working directly from a live setup (no photo) and completing each painting in one sitting.  My subject matter all came from a trip to the grocery store.  The tulips were a delight to have in the house and made their way into several paintings before they wilted.  Here are two of them.
