This is my first painting of this little jug. I found it at a resale shop and bought it thinking it might be right for a painting. It's a heavy little thing - only about 5 inches tall but sturdy and solid. That lent to thoughts of weight and balance more so than with my lighter models. With this piece I feel like I'm entering new territory - uncharted waters while making the map as I go.
