Oil on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 5.5 inches — 14 x 14 cm
Private Collection

The bird of paradise was difficult to paint, but, surprisingly, the blue bottle was quite easy. I have been putting off painting bottles and jars because I thought they would be too difficult to paint with all the reflections and highlights, but this blue bottle seemed to paint itself.

I’m thinking of a new composition for the bottle. I will paint it again, one of these days, as the featured subject.
