Always loved the color of these old jars. And I really like painting glass in watercolor.
Now, understand that this took a wrong turn early on and instead of "starting" over, I decided to see where it led me. I have a bad habit of knowing in my head what I want from the painting and if it seems to not be going that way....well, I start over! Not this time! I told myself, 'Hey kiddo, maybe it's leading you down a better path.' So, here it is.... just know that this is not what I saw in my head but I think it's pretty cool! That being said, I also don't like painting the same thing twice... However, I may just do it again but different! " And I love how the painted extension on the mat turned out. I didn't think this painting was going to have that ability.
