Blue Pitcher

Blue Pitcher
8 X 10
Oil on Hardboard

This was painted in response to the new challenge by Carol Marine over at Daily Paintworks.  We were to take objects and paint them a different color than they were.  Here is what I started with.  I have had this orange pitcher for quite awhile, but wasn't sure how I would use it.  Orange is such an "out there" color.  It can be overwhelming.  This challenge was the perfect opportunity to use the pitcher.

Here is some inspiration for 2012 for all of you creative types.  Thanks to Heather Bullard for sharing this on her blog.

Here is how it might look framed


  1. Karla, a thoughtful post and I love the challenge! I hadn't seen it yet-nice job, Happy New Year!

  2. I think you knailed it Karla!! I hav'nt even decided how I'm going to approach this yet.
