I wanted to do a really simple painting of these pearls that I love! I've always like that unfinished look, but the more I paint the more I like it, especially the warm underpainting coming through the cool top layer. 

Don't you love glazing!?!

This is a recent still life that I did, I was experimenting with fabric, and how that could improve my work. I like the directional flow that it adds, helps to lead the eye and adds dimension. When I was finishing this I decided to warm up the painting as a whole with a glaze, and change the background a bit, thanks to my hubby's advice. Seems to flow a little better now. What would I do without critiques? (:
