I painted this little blue pitcher at a Carol Marine Workshop back in December. I was thinking about how to make my paintings more successful -- browsing back through my notes -- and it struck me that simplicity is a good thing! Particularly when painting in the 6" x 6" format. Some of those old sayings come to mind: "Less is More", "KISS ... Keep It Simple Stupid", "The Less Said the Better". These seem to hold true for painting as well!
