"Mustard Pot & Money Plant" - 8 x 10 - Oil on Canvas
Today is the first day of September and the first of my thirty paintings. I wasn't sure how I was going to manage a painting today as we have company, but the universe conspired to help me out. My company needed to take a trip to Nanaimo and my wonderful husband accompanied them. That left me at home, free to paint!!!
I've wanted to paint this mustard pot for a long time. I really love the simplicity of it, but felt that perhaps it need more to go with it. OMG!!! Once I started painting it I wondered what I had gotten myself into. Why, oh why didn't I just paint the two peaches that are in my fridge. Oh well, I persevered and this is the result. I'm not thrilled with it but it can only get better from here! (The photo is a little bit slanted. The painting is not.:)
Lesson #1 - Don't bite off more than you can chew in a couple of hours! Haha!
