Teapot Looking Glass

12" by 12" oil on stretched canvas.  SOLD

Here is the final version. (I think) I couldn't paint what I saw exactly. The colors of the paint I have didn't replicate the color of that petunia. Other aspects were emphasized in order to get an affect I wanted. I was thinking about Bonnard and how he said "I am very weak, it is difficult for me to keep myself under control in the presence of the object."

I've been working on some other paintings that I haven't been satisfied with from my daily painting days. I think I'll not clog up your mailbox with a separate post but just replace the old one pictures with new ones when I get around to it.
