4" x 10"
I think I may have a problem. I have become obsessed with painting grape jelly as a subject matter. It is the most cool color of purple out there and it is wet and translucent and has reflections of surrounding color showing up in it like a little purple mirror. I don't think people normally think about jelly most of their time. Lately I have been. I'm planning some more jelly paintings in my mind and can't wait to get to them. This painting is a more horizontal format and I think it works great. It was inspired by the painting I did of the butter spreader back in January. I am very happy with the deep dark color in the jelly and the highlights to give it the three dimensional chunky jelly look. This is painting 205 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold
