Cherries and Antique Jar

11"x11" Oil on Canvas
As I painted the antique jar, it got me thinking about the idea of wildness. The glass in the old jar is irregular, lots of little distortions, that made looking through it a delightful experience. The distortions are actually a record of how the silicon cooled, how the heat distributed through the shape of the jar. I consider this type of inorganic activity to be as "wild" as any animal life. So, in effect, I was trying to capture the "wildness" I saw in the antique glass.
