reward for toil and painting number 26






"The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it."
~ John Ruskin.
I sliced open another avocado and got to work. Painted with intense concentration as quickly as possible to capture the creamy greens and yellows from life before the whole thing turned brown under the studio light. Art is satisfying but it is also work. 6x8 oil on linen board painted from life.
