Pipe Box & Jug

Hello, I painted this a few weeks ago from a set up. A dear friend made this pipe box for me several years ago and I love it, I thought the shape of it worked well with this jug. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas.

I think this photograph represents it pretty well, I took several photos. I tried overhead lights on then off with a daylight lamp, out the front door in front of the back door, ahhh. This is the one inside the back door on the floor with some adjustments, there is still a bit of glare although it isn't varnished yet. I have joked about all of the skills an artist must have, photographer, agent, framer and of course painter. If you like my paintings when you see them on my blog or facebook you will love them in person, lol.

Enjoy your day!

Photograph your painting outside on an overcast day, Barbara. Well, it is not always possible but that gives the best white light. Your paintings are good, I am one of those who like them!

Hi Marie, I have tried that too but they seem too light. Shouldn't people see them in inside light so they can judge how they would look in their home ? Hmmm, complicated, lol. I'll keep trying. Thanks for visiting Marie.

But then again, the buyers may like their paintings so much that they spotlight them inside!

So true Marie, good point. :)
