13. Jar, Blocks and Hymnal

Jar, Blocks and Hymnal
6" x 6"
Oil on gessoboard

The morning sun through this frosted window is just so pleasant -- 
I grabbed a few things and tried to capture it. 
Adams Peanut Butter jar (partially filled with water), some of my baby's blocks behind it and all resting on an old hymnal.

The toys and hymnal are vintage, well used and loved -- my favorite sort of thing, and I have a strange fascination with those peanut butter jars! They're just so simple and substantial and sturdy. When the PB is gone, I use them to store raisins and other snacky things. And brushes and pencils and whatever I can find. It just kills me to let one go to recycling! I like 'em a lot. :)
