"Taos Pitcher II"




















6 x 6, oil on canvas panel SOLD

I painted this pitcher on this same tea a few months
ago
but I love the combination so much that I did it
again. I
can't get enough of that striped handle so I'm
sure this
will not be the last time. I'm also doing a
larger version with
it's companion sugar bowl and dish.

I LIKE it again!
...the over-the-top-view.

Turning a little pitcher into a colorful work of art~ ~pretty/cool~ !

Yeah, let's have some sugar with the next one!

I just love this! The contrast of the black rim and handle of the pitcher with the rich color of the body are just perfect. Love the loose brush strokes in the fabric.

Something about this little painting makes me think of a big plate of yummy nachos! Some day when I am rich I will buy a bunch of your little jewels:-)

Beautiful design!

Lovely, unusual jug, works perfectly with the pattern of the cloth. Beautifully painted.

Your ceramic pieces have such a sense of presence and honesty, Gwen. I feel as though I could reach into the canvas and pick up this wonderfully colored jug.

Kelley Sanford said...

You keep painting the pitcher and I'll keep saying how wonderful your painting is. If it was in my still life closet, I'd paint it alot too.

You could paint this over and over and I love it everytime. I enjoy your combination of pottery and patterned background...you do it so well!

Karen Bruson said...

Very nice. Love the black and white handle. It just pulls you right in.

Lovely! I especially like how you captured the loose orange striping on the red body of the teapot. Very believable.

Stephen Parker said...

My favorite mug, so far. And the painting is beautiful, too! Love the paint quality and highlights on the handle, especially.

The deal is that you combine the cups and teapots with such incredible and appropriate backgrounds they make such a complete artistic statement. Completely beautiful Gwen, again.

Edward Burton said...

Very beautiful, Gwen. Looking forward to seeing the larger plus its companion piece.

Kim said...

Great! I love the gentle tones of whites in the cream and inside of the creamer. Handled beautifully. And the cloth! Great perspective on the print there. It must be tough - but it feels like it's lying down. Very nice work : )

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Nicely done Gwen! I feel I can reach out and pick that pitcher up off the screen. The handle just pops. Must be the strong colors against the muted background next to it.

DEB said...

This is a great piece for anyone with a southwest theme Gwen...Great job!

Dean Grey said...

Gwen!

I can see why you keep painting this pitcher over and over again.

I love its black trim and striped handle!
