Day 13 - 30 paintings in 30 days - http://lesliesaeta.blogspot.com/
Got a new camera and am still trying to work out the intricacies - this picture will get better. I just didn't want to go another day without posting a painting.
Based on this quote: “The sun rises each morning to shed light on the things we may have overlooked the day before.” ― Tyler J. Hebert
Isn't this just a perfect quote for artists who paint stills of everyday objects. This plant sprayer sits on a table in my studio. I have managed to kill every plant I have had in there but the sprayer remains. Maybe it's the oil paint fumes. The part of the wooden box that you see was a gift from one of my husband's friends. It is a hand-inlaid Bible box. He gave the gift to me when I opened my studio/gallery space almost 8 years ago. I have opened that box many times for inspiration in these past eight years. I painted this with the afternoon sun coming in the window and decided to make it as dramatic as possible. I love drama in paintings - abhor it in life!
Have two other paintings in the works but sometimes I just can't do it all in one day but I am painting every day now.
