Delft Vase with Apples

Once again I found myself roaming the house looking for something to put into a painting.  You may have noticed I like blue and white china.  This particular vase, or pitcher, was purchased during my first visit to Delft in the 1980s.   Then Delft was less touristy, buses to be sure, but far less than when I returned to visit a few years ago.  The prices have skyrocketed too, but I always buy a few small pieces to add to the collection.

Lemons in Blue Bowl

The problem with hanging your own art in your home is you find faults with the paintings constantly.  I can't count the number of times I've repainted paintings from years ago.  Sometimes I can't save them and they end up in the trash.  This one was in a pile of "redos" I thought I might attempt.  Hope I continue to find ways to improve what I've painted before.
