Turquoise Mug

"Turquoise Mug", 10 x 10 In, Oil on Panel
This is another painting that started out one way and finished another. After looking at it for a couple of days, I simplified it by scraping out a third object that didn't work and changing the dimensions of the panel. It turned into an exercise that was mostly about color.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. That turquoise mug is fabulous. Great color! Love it with the orange. Sometimes simpler is better and this is wonderful!

  2. The work you've been doing with the knife really shows here, in a very positive way. You've stretched yourself and the growth is visible.

  3. Kathy and Kathryn--thank you for your comments! Painting is such a two steps forward one step back (sometimes three steps back!) type of endeavor.
