This is the 2nd time that I have painted this wonderful black whiskey bottle that I purchased on EBay. Its just a fantastic size and the color is really nice. The little white jar is from my aunt. It actually has a blue and white design, but I left it off this time because I really wanted to show the color of the jar. This morning I varnished my current paintings. Once the varnish goes on all of the painting just seems to have a glow. This was taken before the varnish.
Well I am back to painting my favorite vessel the gold vase. I can't help it I just love how it turns out when I paint it. I am near the end of the container of pears and may go by the store to see if I can find any new ones that have good color.

I needed a present to give for Christmas and bought the aqua jar from my coworker Roberto. He had made it in his pottery class and I loved the shape, size and color. Needless to say I kept the piece of pottery for myself to paint. I just love those aqua colors and the touch of orange/rust from the clay.
I found painting a red vase a little more difficult then I expected. I guess because there were many shades of red and I didn't wanted it as bright as it was so I toned it down. I have pears in many of my paintings currently because I bought a big container at Sam's and just keep using them. I think I am getting down to the end. Usually by the time I finish the painting they are mushy. Next weekend I will varnish this painting and it will be at the Spotlight On Art Show at the Trinity School. I will post the information in a week or so. After viewing this picture I adjusted the neck and top part of the red vase to make it more even. I will post a new picture if I have time next Saturday.
