|6x6" Oil on panel|
Painting these vintage shakers took me back to my grandmother's kitchen and all the cool retro dishes and appliances. These shakers were difficult to paint (glass is hard for me) and at this point I can't part with this little painting. I may try a new arrangement of them and then I'll be able to sell one or the other.
Drying issues: I've already started and finished another painting of a vintage kitchen piece but I want to let my paintings have a chance to dry before I post. When I started this blog, I didn't have a clear understanding of how long to wait before posting. Definitely, I need to let my paintings dry enough to varnish. I use Gamvar which can be applied as soon as they are dry to the touch; however, that can take at least a week or more.
