Spice Jar 
 (temporary title)
oil on canvas

Just finished the Spice Jar painting. Can't progress any further without muddling with the paint. That's a clear sign it is time to quit and sign it. I had a lot of help with this one from the gang of four. ( my critique club). My favorite part was the texture in the wall. My least favorite part ( because I painted it over 11 times) was the orange. Over all though I like the painting for the mood and sense of place.
OK, on to the next one!

This is beautiful Peter. I particularly am drawn to the cloth. I love the fact that you allowed it to be messy and not draped perfectly.I also really like the feeling you gave to the back wall. It all is beautifully done, and reads very well in space with a lovely gently light.

Really it's breathtaking, Peter. I know it's a painting but at the same time, it looks so lifelike. Bravo!
