More Toys

"More Toys"
9" x 12"
Watercolor on paper
A newly-formed art marble took comfort in a crisp linen napkin nestled in my mother's parian bowl.  A skeptical observer kept a watchful eye on the goings on, aware of his inability to change a thing.

Overlap, stuff, fold, tuck and stack. That's one way to put this many things into a painting and keep it interesting.  I found by this time that I loved painting my mother's linens.  The addition of a live flower breathed life into the composition and I made up the background long after the subject matter was finished.  It needed more than a flat background.

This will end the current series of watercolors. Next... acrylics!

This painting is listed with, and for sale through a Dailypaintworks auction.
