I'm starting to sound like a fangirl.

Love this one. Lots.

Jason Waskey said...

Thank you, Ms. Boo.

Artists need fans!

Jason, nice composition. You did a great job getting all these monochromatic colors to pop out.

Jason, great work! Love how you treated the plastic, really good stuff here. This is one of my favorites of yours, the contrast draws the eye in and keeps it there. Good, good stuff.

Perhaps you could post a few shots of a piece in progress for us?

Jason Waskey said...

Sherry,
Thank you!

Jason Waskey said...

Casey,
Thanks for stopping by! I generally don't have the presence of mind to shoot progress shots on the little ones, but there are some progress shots of how I work available here:
On the easel

There are a bunch of step by step pieces there from the last couple of years...

Nicely done Jason. I like how you shake up the subject matter so much. Great way to not get "Stale" so to speak.
Great work on the cellophane wrapper and color choices.

Jason Waskey said...

Frank,
Thanks for the kind comment. Sometimes it's a stretch (picking what to paint), but I'm seeing it pay dividends...

Kathryn Law said...

I *love* this one. The reflected color of the crackers inside the cellophane sleeve--brilliant!

David Lobenberg said...

Some lousy crackers in cellophane?! Why aren't you painting something significant like a can of cat food!!!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

You nailed that! Great!

Jason Waskey said...

Kathryn,
Thanks! I can't take credit for the orange reflection though--- it's just what was there...

David,
'Cause the cat eats dry food? :)
I will work on elevatin' my subject matter when I get back from the supermarket.

Mary,
Thanks!

Jason, this is terrific. The plastic is so convincingly rendered while remaining loose, vibrant and full of movement.

Great painting Jason...I particularly love how you handled the cellophane wrapper!

Jennifer Bellinger said...

Jason,
Super Duper! Love it!

Jason Waskey said...

Don,
Thank you-- I probably ot a little lucky with this one. :)

D.
Thanks!

Jennifer,
Merci beaucoup!

No one has commented about that cracker! A finer cracker I have not seen. Suggested, not rendered. Reminds me of Sargent's old woven chair.
