Diane Mannion, Blue Canning Jar, 8x10" oil on canvas
Sixth in the 30/30 Challenge. It's going to be a long month! And weekends are the hardest. But one thing's for sure... several of these challenge paintings wouldn't have been painted if it wasn't for the challenge. Bought these flowers at the farmer's market in Venice this morning... some colors just do not exist in paint tubes! This was painted from life, direct painting. Nothing wrong with painting from photos, but looking at the real thing instead of a flat photo... is a pleasure!
