I find glass jars quite the challenge. It is interesting to decide where you will let the background
color peep in to add reflection and light. I liked manipulating the paint to form the texture on the pickles. I originally planned to make definate bumps but opted to leave them as they were. This painting is much
I just thought that I would post this in two versions. The original and the revised. I don't usually post personal things but I couldn't resist. Logan my grandson has just moved to town. He is five. That should tell you enough but I will continue. I painted this the other day of a salt shaker my husband gave me for Christmas and a few grapes. It was still on my easel when Logan came for a visit. The next morning I went to paint and my chicken looked a little different than it did the night before. It was kinda streaked and some red was in places that I did not intend for it to be. I ask him and Paul my 6 year old grandson if either of them had been in my studio and if they knew why my painting was smeared both said no but then Logan went on to say as he pointed at my palette knife. I think they used that to do it with. I looked closer to find the tip of the knife covered with red paint. Paint just like is on the chicken beak. How could I be mad at that. I just got my brush and fixed it. I just can't imagine what happened :0) can you?
