Mara Schasteen's New E-Book

This is a work in progress.  So far so good I think.  I will be adding berries, ivy and apple blossems in the pink vase.  I think I will make the vase on the far left a dark blue to balance things out.  Wish me luck!

I wanted to tell you about a new e-book by Mara Schasteen.  It is called Tips and Tricks for Painting Still Life in Oils and is only $4.95.  I found it helpful and am trying to incorporate some of her tips in this painting.  I absolutely love Mara's art and this little e-book is full of her beautiful paintings.

Have a great week!



  1. Great start Karla.Would be looking forward to see the finished piece.

  2. Yes Karla, you are off to a wonderful start with this. Can't wait to see what you do next.

  3. I like you colors, Karla, especially the blue tissue that match very well with the pink vase .We feel a sense of quietness in your painting!
