Turquoise Pitcher

oil 8x8 inches magnify/purchase info Number 22 of 31 paintings in 31 days, this is one of my favorites. For me, the benefit of painting every day like I did in January, is being able to work with confidence instead of second guessing as I go along. It results in loose looking brushwork; laying down a stroke and leaving it alone, moving on to the next area and not fussing with things as I go. This painting is a good example. It has the freshness I'm looking for in my work. Back when I was painting mostly watercolor I heard this: "Do you want your painting to be like fresh sushi or well-done beef?" I'm going for the sushi. I've got to paint every day.


  1. Bonjour chère amie,

    Cette composition est remplie d'énergie avec ce magnifique contraste des oranges et des turquoise...
    La lumière est aussi merveilleusement omniprésente.

    Gros bisous 🌸

  2. Love the turquoise pitcher, such an unusual perspective for a still life. Karen, you know how to make a painting more special to look at.
