Freedom! #660

I figured I'd paint the honey jar again before I eat it all.

Other News; Book club tonight! We're reading "Freedom" - well we were supposed to have finished it, almost done. . . I just might make it!

6x6in, acrylic


  1. I've loved your honey jar and will miss it.

    Have you or anyone else noticed that tilting a laptop's screen completely changes values? This painting of the honey jar really makes the point. I assume that the darker values are closer to what you paint, but that's just my assumption, not fact.

    While I'm pestering, have you ever posted a photo of your palette (boy, p p p...) after you've had your way with it? That seems a little voyeuristic, doesn't it? Not unlike asking to see your underwear. Please feel free to say, uh-uh, no way! But I know it would be instructive.

  2. Thanks for sending over your FB link, I liked it! And I was scrolling back through your paintings early and was so impressed!! I can't believe you do them in a day?!

  3. I am really drawn to this particular painting! I love the color and the active brushwork. The color is filled with light.

  4. Lisa, today's painting just pulled me in...the painterly, loving the boldness of the whole piece.

  5. Hi there, Charlotte from The Daily Snapshot here. First of all, I'm incredibly impressed with your paintings and your story. I can't paint, no matter how much I want to, so to see your art, and consider you make it everyday... wow.

    Second, so glad you want to join the Book Club Bloggers! The Linky for the reviews for "Girl, Interrupted" will go up March 25th, and then we're reading "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" for April. Can't wait to have you along!

  6. Wonderful golden glow Lisa!
    And as always, lush, bold strokes.

  7. I love the back light in this painting! I chose it as my favorite daily painting on my blog, I hope you'll come by and check it out! Thanks, Rosa
