My Blue Bottle
I bought six of these cobalt blue bottles recently and have been enjoying using them in my still life set ups. I have a variety of shapes and sizes. Finding the balance in my painting style leads me to challenge everything I do, and sometimes I just settle for less when if I had pushed just a little harder I would have found what I was looking for. That is the case with this painting. I realizd that it wasn't working at all and went back into the painting very carefully seizing upon the opportunity to rework strategic ares of form and color. I am happy with the results. I wish that my process were cleaner and more polished and maybe that will come in time, but for now, I muddle along. Does anyone else relate to this? Or...am I the only culprit!
