Video Post from

This video was created by Dan McCool of He has developed a creative marketing venture where he comes to your location to discuss the subject of your choice. At the closing of the "discussion," a glass of wine is shared. Living in a area rich with vineyards, this seems like a good fit. Here we focused on the start-up of my new Laura Gable Studio space ... where I am offering painting lessons, and a showcase of my art. Stop by when you are in the neighborhood (17 N Auburn - Kennewick WA 99336).

Oh and the pertinence of placing this video on my WIP blog, is that you get to see me working on this nesting piece in it's earliest stages. Also see me trying to talk in a lucid fashion while painting.... a challenge, indeed.

"Birth" 2nd post

Yes it's nearing completion..removed the swirl in the upper right--it was competing with the nest shape...tweaked the lower left corner to feels more grounded and organic. May need to break up the large expanse of middle value on the right side with more light values.

"Birth" 1st post

Earlier progress wasn't recorded on this one ... sorry. Let's call this starting point (even though I'm almost finished with it). It's the third painting in my nesting series. Painted in oils with a semi-ethereal presence ... I like the progress.
