a new jar . . .

A NEW JAR
8x8 acrylic experiment on canvas panel
myra anderson
It's amazing! I redid 'my very first cupcake' in oil.  I wanted to paint it in a more impressionist way.  I LOVE IT!  It's way more cupcakey.  I also have several unsuccessful oil canvases that I need to paint over.  I really wasn't in the mood to deal with them.  It's funny that so far cupcakes put me in the mood to -- cut out some coupons, go to the store, buy some turpentine, buy some oil paint, buy some brushes, cover the terrible canvases and repaint.  I will post this 'little wonder' when dry. 

THE PAINTING ABOVE is another series I was working on entitled 'a new jar'.  As you can see, I actually found a little texture at the end of my brush.  Rather than 'ruin' this one I decided that I am going to repaint this composition - but this time put lettering on the jar because I am positive it would look better.

look at you-
with your new red hat -
and your shiny new clothes-
yes your cute little dress of red and gold!
do me a favor-
stay fresh-
be sweet-
and don't grow up too soon!

Can't wait to see the oil cupcake, and I love your jar. A jar is such an interesting subject.

To answer your question re: professional grade paint. Yes, they are better. Much better. Smoother, more buttery or something. I don't know how to describe it. I just could tell right away.
