"All Gone" --- SOLD

I've always read about lost edges, but this is the first time I've created one - on purpose, and had it work. Can you find it?

Cups are a real challenge to paint. I thought about them over the holiday and had some new ideas. The main idea, and I hope I can say this clearly, was to...wherever there's an edge (2 colors meet)...paint past the edge with the first color, and then come back with the second color and kind of cut it off where it needs to be. That instead of painting up to an edge and having an awkward gap or line. Does that make sense? These are the kinds of things I think about in my spare time. I can't tell you how many times my husband has said, when I've been quiet for a while, "so, you painting in your head again?"

Bottom right hand corner of the cup? It's funny that you mention lost edges. I was just watching a Helen Van Wyk video in which she talked about lost edges. I tried to keep that in mind when I painted my last painting of eggplants. Mine is also in the bottom right but I didn't pull it off anywhere as well as you did.

I like this one a lot. What a fantastic array of beautiful greys you've created!

Ditto to Craigs comment. You are so talented. I feel so fortunate to have discovered your work. I love the painting still life best of all .
