Blue Willow Stack original mixed media painting by Polly Jones

8" acrylic and mixed media on gallery wrapped canvas. On SOLD

Twice yesterday I had uploaded photos of this painting and planned on posting here only to discover when I looked at the photo on the computer that it was all wrong. Something about condensing it down helps problems show up.

For me, the bowl ended up sometimes seeming solid and clunky and sometimes atmospheric with the ship floating around. I really want that kind of tension in my work because I like paradoxes.

Incredibly complicated and well handled painting! I love your paintings of this particular bowl and cup.

Well, Blue Willow is one of my favorites. Very pretty dishes. I love blue and white together. Always classy.
