Hot Sauce

Hot Sauce

7x5in oil on canvas  $100. SOLD

Day 9 in the 30 in 30 Days Challenge
My personal goal  for this challenge - to paint only what I have
never painted or thought of painting before.

Artist Note.

I am staying with a friend in Albuquerque and she has this
great bottle of hot sauce. I mean the bottle is great - I have not
tasted the sauce. She recommended I try painting it.

Workshop was intense and fun today. Cold wax was used as
the medium and I am looking forward to seeing how it dries.
I like the surface quality very much.

I enjoyed reading the comments and I thank everyone.
It is also fun hearing from new people in The 30 in 30 Challenge.
I will be visiting blogs when I return home.
And to the all those "blogger challenged" who sent me so many personal
emails congratulating me on being The Art Room blogger of the day,
I thank you, too.

  1. It might have been a good idea to paint that bottle rather than taste its contents. Looks hot to me. You definitely captured its essence.

  2. This bottle of hot sauce is painted beautifully, Julie!!! and I loved your turnips!! You're doing an amazing job with this challenge!

  3. A great hot sauce painting, Julie! Is this on SENSO primed linen?
    It looks wonderful.

  4. Well, I am playing things more safe than you, but secretly I wish I was able to just pick a subject and nail it like you can. I assume that the sauce is hot, since the painting looks hot and spicy with it's warm colors. Well done.
