8" x 6" x 3/4", oil on masonite panel
This is probably my first truly self-referential painting as a painter, definitely inspired by the work of Duane Keiser and his various paintings of paint. I've always been fascinated by the concept but never really saw it fitting in with my painting style, but the experience was an exciting and challenging one. I imagined the biggest hurdle would be getting the paint gobs to look three-dimensional but it was maintaining the form of the jar while mucking up the glass surface that proved to be the real struggle.
