The search for the unique, special, or never-before-seen subject can be a long and fruitless journey. So, sometimes I just paint the obvious that ofter time turns out be unique, specially, and beautifully honest. These 2 ball canning jars sit on the windowsil tin my Maine workshop studio. I prepared a sheet of Kilamanjaro watercolor paper with coats of gesso, mat medium and tissue paper (a process I got from Becca Jones-(http://www.rebeccagracejones.com/). This process of veiling previous applied layers of paint lends itself to creating feelings of old and mysterious. This painting looked like hell for a long time and then suddenly revealed exactly what I sought.
