I don't even want to know how long ago the blue challenge was...:lol: I have been thinking and planning how to finish this one....so finally here is the new and improved version!

It is not signed yet either...so go ahead with the C&C...there is always room for improvement in what I do!

11x14 on wrapped canvas

Great work susan...love how youve done this. What color blue is that? Its a very nice color!!!

Thanks, Mike!! I was glad to finally find a way to make it work!

The blue is one of the first "grown up" paints I bought...Liquitex Heavy Body Ultramarine Blue (green shade)...straight from the tube. I have a weakness for blues...:o, so I have to be careful...or everything would be shades of blue.

Ok, I think ive got that color somewhere around here...I love it though!!!!

I forget what it looked like before. But it looks really good now.

Looks good... sign it and frame it.

Thanks, MIke!! It still amazes me how much less of the artist grade I need compared to the student to get the colors and look I want!

Thank you, Michelle...I owe it all to you!

Pat...thank you!!

Susan, this looks antiqued (as I know the pieces are)
A fitting tribute to wonderfully old treasures.

:wave: I really like this blue too, Susan! And, the gold trim on the dishes! This is such a charming and beautiful painting. It will look perfect in someone's dining room!:D Good to get some of the "back-burner" paintings done, isn't it?:lol:

Hi Susan,

I remember your first version. Your eyes were twitching, and you kept sticking your tongue out. You certainly know how to stick with a challenge, and, it does make a difference, nice work.

Thank you Ozone! Sometimes setting them aside for awhile works....sometimes it does not! If you look around my studio, there are alot of 'nots'. Nice to see one that did!

09-13-2008, 10:16 PM
