Forget-me-nots


Stole this adorable sprig of forget-me-nots from the neighbor's. 

Hope they're not reading this.

Hey Jala,
I saw your comment on Cheryls blog. Not sure if you're still looking for model sessions but I know they were doing it one night a week at Art Work Space in Boulder. It was cheap too - like $12 for 3 hours. You could probably call over there and find out.
Beautiful painting BTW!

Beautiful cast shadow. I also like the way the vase seems to disappear as it turns away from the light. gorgeous, loose, perfect.

Jala, just spent an enjoyable browse through your latest paintings. Your colour sense is superb and I wouldn't worry about being too painterly or too realistic. I love the comment by one viewer - just hold onto the brush and enjoy the ride. I shall remember that for myself! Love the treatment of this vase in this little painting(and it is painterly :-D)

Karen said...

OOOO the silver!!!!! Love that highlight!

Fabulous, Jala, so very alla prima, delicate and masterful, and the feather too!
