Little Blue Jug
The Little Blue Jug.
6x6 oil on canvas 75.
I really enjoyed painting this sweet little jug partly because the shape is so neat.
As I was working on it I saw several different shades of blue in the glaze which were not apparent to me before.
A little bit of lavender, some cerulean, working gradually into a cobalt. All very subtle variations The potter who made it must have come up with his own recipe.
I am a painter living in Las Cruces, NM. After many years as an illustrator I turned to fine art to develop my own artistic voice. I currently teach talented and enthusiastic artists in oil, acrylic and egg tempera painting. I am also a member of the Artist Guild of Southern New Mexico.
