Finally did a “real” painting. In other words, an acrylic painting instead of a watercolour. And no flowers. When my mom visited last I showed her my “Blue Tulips” still life painting and I preempted the viewing with, “The bottle is great but the tulips are a bit of a mess.” Then she looked at it and said simply, “You always do well on the containers.” That’s when it occurred to me that I am maybe too stuck on including flowers in my still life paintings and should try doing just jars or vases. So that’s what this is.
The colour is a bit crazy—it reminds me of some things I did in University. At the time one of my profs told me that I used such terribly ugly garish colours together, but that it somehow worked. I was quite pleased with that critique.
