About this artwork

I have painted this jug before. It's a ceramic piece I paid $225 for. When I first painted it as part of a still life, I knew I wanted to paint it again by itself.

I have painted this jug before. It's a ceramic piece I paid $225 for. When I first painted it as part of a still life, I knew I wanted to paint it again by itself.

This jug seems more human, somewhat scared, as if it's trying to shrink into the background. The shadow in the back came out slightly darker than the original.

I love all the meanings that can be put into this painting. Blue is the colour of depression. The jug is actually a torso, giving a double meaning to its objectness. Technically as a real jug, it is useless due to the glaze used.

Prints available, please inquire.
