sunshine on a cloudy day


Ok ok I know.  This is the third egg cup.  And I have one more to do.  In the 15 years that I have been painting, I have only painted the same thing twice, once.  (And yes, that does make sense.)  I don't like to paint the same thing over again.  At least that's what I thought.  Painting the same thing three times is fantastic!  I don't know if they are getting progressively better, but it's so interesting for me to see how the outside light affects the reflections on the cup as well as the background.  Of course, these are small paintings.  Let's see if I ever get around to doing a large painting over and over.

Probably not.....


  1. Welcome to Fresh Paint, Marla! Just spent some time browsing your blog...all the way back to the photo your "painting cage" :) LOVE your work and the stories behind them. Can't wait to see more!

  2. It's so true that when you paint the same thing a few times it gets better. This is so well done.
