Temple Bottle with Irish Pear



Since taking private painting mentoring classes with Abbey Ryan, I've grown to love painting handmade pottery. It is so inspiring for me to see our landscape appear in the highlight, and it is always a challenge for me to paint.

Don't forget to wear green tomorrow! Wishing you a happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hi Hilda, thank you! I apologize for the poor image quality. I will try to get another one tomorrow when it isn't so windy here! Happy painting, sweet friend.

WOW!, I will look more closely in future, I can see the reflection of land and sky. The depth of your beautiful paintings draws the viewer in and keeps us there for a long time! You are most definitely a star pupil and yet you have your own uniqueness added to every piece which makes your work instantly recognisable.
