484 Empty Bowls
My recent series of bowl paintings has been to celebrate "home" and 38 of the paintings have featured bowls hand made and purchased years ago from Jean Wells Smaglik, one of the artists and organizers of Milwaukee Empty Bowls. These are 3 of the 7 pieces of Jean's.
I tried something a little different with this painting. I nearly always ground my boards with black gesso but so many artists are presently grounding with a soft orange/coral color, so I thought I would try it with this painting. Carol Marine just mentioned it in today's post, and one of Milwaukee's favorites, Shelby Keefe often uses this color. I am eager to hear what you think.
