Journal: Indian Pickles

by Susan Abbott
As I've been engrossed in the studio with a new series of Vermont landscapes, I'm finding I miss paying attention to the little things I see every day here at home or out in the changing weather. So I'm back to doing small "journal paintings" in the morning as a warm-up for studio painting. My rules (hey, I'm a Virgo) for these are: 8" x 8" gessoed board, seven colors (white plus six primaries), directly observed, and no more than ninety minutes. Here are Indian mango pickles that I bought in Montreal, because who could pass up that color.
