The title is in celebration of being laid off due to reorganization. The red apple needs to start looking for a new canvas. i really wanted to work with contrasts today. I had been admiring the value structure in a painting by Rembrandt.

# 200: Loosey Goosey

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I love painting my little goose. It is always a fun challenge. The black vase...not so much. There is so much going on with the reflection on the surface that I forget about the form. I also got a little distracted with painting my own reflection. Can you tell that it is me sitting back there?

6"x 6" oil on canvas

I enjoyed trying to get the distortion right, but in the process lost the position of the ears. Piggy has so much personality, he is never tiresome.

# 197: Pinocchio

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I took on a challenge of distortion through glass with a tight crop where you cannot see the glass. The problem is that there is not enough distortion and through the glass and so who knows what is really going on?

# 195: Black Shoes

6" x 6" oil on canvas

I wanted to work mostly with value and so picked my black shoes to paint on a neutral background. I am not sure if the painting is balanced. The left shoe looks like it is ready to get going.
