As stated before in a previous post, I am working on planning or solving some problems before jumping in to the painting process. With this plan in action, the basic compositions are now being solved in drawings before any paint is touched. Below is a drawing, a small 5" x7 "color study, and the current painting (16"x 20") that is 80% done (maybe 90%, or 20% you never know).

I am having a difficult time coming up with a title for this painting. Currently I am thinking about the tv-dinner trays that are part of it. So possibly... backyard lunch, afternoon snack-time, or backyard with tv-dinner trays...any suggestions?

I am also starting a new painting today based on the drawing below.
