Before I came to Utah, Meredith dropped the hint that her apartment needed some art. I told her I would like to paint her something--a still life for her kitchen. She picked a photo of figs from an old challenge on paint and draw together and I thought it was perfect. I brought my brushes with me, but I had to purchase canvas and paint once I arrived. I did not want to buy paints I already had, so I decided to stick with the primary colors (red, yellow and blue), black and white. I thought it would be my own painting challenge--to have to mix all my colors from the color building blocks. This painting is basically a red and blue combination, so it was a good place to start.
