324. Light in Shining Armor

'Light in Shining Armor'

It's been two years since I've attempted a vintage canning jar, and I think this is my best one yet! 
Every new painting, I set up my palette with hopeful anticipation and think, 'this is gonna go smoothly, I'm gonna sail right through!'. Ha! Nope, nope, nope. Never happens. 
Thankfully, it's not all frustration and despair, - there were many moments of triumph along the way.

323. Anticipation

I've painted this scene before, and it was a disaster, so I thought I'd give it another shot.
Still incredibly difficult! But, I think I did a little better this time. :)

Summer afternoon in Minnesota.
