Every time I paint something on the stove I think of Van Gogh. I don't know why but this always happens. Once I have Van Gogh on my mind it's all over. My style changes... I get a crazy look in my eyes as I paint. This can be fun and very disturbing at the same time.

That honey jar has done its fair share of posing for me. I think it has been in at least 4 or 5 paintings now, same with the tea pot. I haven't grown tired of painting them yet, so I am sure they will end up in many more pictures.
