50 Starts - Start 15, Green Bowl and Green, er, something...
7x7", water-soluble oils
I painted this in response to the Limited Stroke challenge. It was terribly difficult for me to make myself do this, but a very good practice. The result is an awful mess of sludgy paint, but I did come away with a much stronger painting than I usually achieve. Somewhere or other I saw a motto that said "Move toward discomfort" and apparently there's much truth in it.
And speaking of discomfort, that jar in the back turned out a lot more phallic-shaped than in real life! Oh well, I'll only sell this one in the adult section of the art gallery :D
