The Still Life Workshop blog is being discontinued, but I will post occasional set up photos on my BenikArts blog starting Fall of 2016.

We have spent the past year preparing to move from our Denver area home. This journey is nearly complete, and I will be setting up my new studio over the next couple of months.

Explore your world and paint what you love!

All Strung Up

The latest still life class set up at our gallery includes a mandolin, a violin, and a guitar.  This is an exercise in "shiny" - bottles, instruments, etc.  Again, pick an area for your focal point.  Maybe you just want to do one of the Ball jars, or maybe you like the violin.  It's up to you, and this picture has a lot of possibilities!

All Strung Up
If you want to see more pictures from our gallery still life setups, you can click here.

Again, there are no deadlines to the Still Life Workshop challenges, so work on them at your own pace.  The next still life painting challenge will be posted on Sunday September 23rd (more or less).

Follow the "Send Your Pictures" rules on the right when you are ready to share your artwork, but most of all, have fun!
