Use With Steam

Diane Mannion, Use With Steam, Snippet #28, 3.5x2.5" oil on linen

Antique Vicks Jar

Love painting jars, especially this one because it has my favorite colors, teal and ultramarine blue.  Found this tiny antique in shop near San Antonio last year.  Painted it before as Snippet #2.  Holding on to #23 until the paint dries then will put it up for auction.

Even though I tell my students to never ever put their fingers in paint!   Couldn't resist just one touch in the middle of this one to lighten the value.  Do what I say not what I do.

Snippet #2 from last year. Sold

I have three large paintings on exhibit at the Punta Gorda Visual Arts Center, GREATEST HITS SHOW, all winners from past shows... December 9-26.
