"Stepping Back" - SOLD

I like the idea of objects falling off the canvas, but I should have moved the subject down just a bit. That is a cool blue vase and I wish more was seen. I think I will paint the vase again, but with more of it showing.

By the way...this is painting #100.

This is great. I think I understand when you say you wish more of the blue vase was showing, but you know, I think the limited view adds nicely to a pleasant tension. I sort of want to see more, but enough of it is showing so that I know what it is--and wonder about the rest of it. A little mystery goes a long way. Your color use, composition and dead-on drawing skills pull together for a winner of a painting--as usual.

I think it works well as it is. Maybe a second visit to the same set up later.
Congratulations on 100.

I check your blog often. I really like how you put the paint down. Looking forward to the next 100.
