WIP from the RIL. Just to let you know I haven't been entirely idle this week although settling with three teenage grandchildren in the house wasn't easy.:lol:

I was in two minds as to finish this because I have had such trouble with the pot:mad: No matter what I do to it, it just isn't going to be right...so thats it. The End :lol: Back to the drawing board.:D

...I have had such trouble with the pot:mad: No matter what I do to it, it just isn't going to be right...so thats it...I know the pot isn't exactly what you wanted, but I think it works well. I've certainly felt that feeling thousands of times..."Well, 'such and such' portion of this isn't how I wanted." Or, "'So and so' object doesn't have exactly the right shape or color I intended."

But in the end you leave it in the minds and hearts of us observers (unless you paint totally for yourself and it never leaves your desktop), and we might not have the same expectations that you did. If it's not just this hue or that shape, well, it's okay by us.

I do like the pot. I like the unfinished quality and the way it doesn't photographic-accurately sit on the plane of the tabletop. I like the way it doesn't photographic-accurately fit the three-dimensional space.

Oh, and I could go on about how I like the shape and color of the flowers, which I bet you hit your goal perfectly!

It turned out great!...hmmmm i agree with some of the things TWTom said....
I like paintings with a little bit of interpretation....that is, with some brushstrokes from the artist's soul:)
