Art Jars

Today's painting is 6x6 inches, oil on canvas panel. The subject is a collection of jars that sit in my studio. A couple of them have terpentine that I use for washes, another has mineral spirits that I use for cleaning brushes, and the smallest is a terpentine jar I take along when painting outside. It was fun to stack them up and paint. The varied shapes, colorful contents, and sparkle on the metal lids inspired me. It was a fun little challenge.
