I painted this pitcher and the melons back in 2006. Looking back on it I wish I had painted the painting on a bigger panel. The pitcher ends too close to the top of the panel. The painting was done in a class with one of the best teachers and artists I have ever known-Karen Appleton. You can get to her website under my links. She would set up 3 still life's and we could pick which one we wanted to paint. Each still life she set up was done with artistic perfection.
