My series on paintings and studio shots continues this week with 11 artists participating. Thank you to all my friends -- and to the friends of my friends -- for getting the word out and helping me assemble this slideshow. There is a lot to learn from reading the tips and texts that accompany the studio shots.

The images, the palettes -- and in the case of artist Norman Turner the scenery -- are energizing.

If you or an artist you know would like to be considered for inclusion in a future slideshow, send me an email with an image of a recent painting at johnseed@gmail.com.
