Change is in the air

I've made a big change in all my sites' names. The change is that all my sites now have the 
same name. The names are shorter, easier to type and easier to remember. 
They all have the words robin rosenthal art and it looks like this

Here are my sites:  

Other sites include either my full name as on daily paintworks or begin with robinrosenthala

Thank you for following me and supporting my art journey.

Mack is a very handsome standard apricot poodle with a laid-back temperament. His owner is an architect and how fitting that she posed him in front of a local building's architectural feature.

Dog and Cat Commissions

Both commissions were picked up yesterday and are on their way as holiday gifts. Two people will be surprised and I hope pleased.

Overbed Table

This may not be a very exciting post for most viewers, but bear with me. I have a new
table which is an Overbed table that holds my shadow box. It can easily be raised or lowered to all positions between 28"- 45" just by pressing the lever. This makes it easy to view my still lifes from above and from front on.  The downside, it has to be assembled, but if you're handy it is well worth the trouble.

Craftsman Cabinet

This is one of my favorite studio fixtures, a Craftsman 5-drawer cabinet. I keep my painting panels, gloves and new brushes in the first drawer, oil paints in the next two, painting tools like pliers and wringers in the fourth and drawing supplies in the bottom drawer.

Blue Scissors and Purple Cup

This painting comes after reading the first 7 chapters in the book Blue and Yellow don't make Green. The  basis of this book is about mixing pigments according to light physics; some colors are absorbed while others are reflected. It's a new way of thinking for me and when it gets too scientific I just look at the color charts.
