My muse has eluded me recently. I have lots of excuses for not painting but none of them really stand up to scrutiny.
I made a new shadow box today, so I will see if I can use it for some still lifes and try to get my painting muscles back into shape.
Of course more than half the battle is just choosing something to paint. I just grabbed the first three things that came to hand. A little odd, and fairly challenging. Peaches are one of the hardest fruits to paint, in my opinion, but so delicious.

Not only does Maddie hate being photographed, she doesn't even like to be sketched and will usually hide if she sees me with a pencil in my hand.
Needless to say, the only pictures I have managed to make of her have been while she was asleep. Even these had to be pretty quick as I think that she can smell my focused attention and will usually wake up, give me an accusing look and slink off.
