Bottle and Jar




5"X7" Oil on panel



I don't think I am finished with this yet. I was working on it yesterday as the light was failing and I want to take another good look at it in daylight, that won't happen until next weekend. One of the reasons I have stopped putting the "Buy Now" button on these pages is because I felt that once I had done that there was no going back. Even though most of these have been, and will continue to be, finished "alla prima" there are times when I need to review in different light or I need to wait for things to dry. This one actually looks a little better on screen than in reality. The shrinking effects disguised a lot of flaws.


I have a number of these little cut-glass bottles and jars with silver tops. I inherited these two from my mother-in-law and I have some more that were my mother's. Lovely useless little dust-collectors.


I should put in a plug for these new canvas panels that I bought online from Twelve Oaks Studio Supply, Karl Heerdt is an artist located in upstate New York who makes these excellent little "Daily Painting Panels" as a sideline. I can attest to their quality and will probably buy more.
