While I'm working on a piece, I often start obsessing over my next project. In this case the blue bowl. I had it on my windowsill and everytime I went to do something at my sink, the bowl was there tempting me.
Finally I had a chance to capture the swirling pattern and the rich blue hue. I paired it up with some plates that my mother has had for years. I've looked at them so much that I've almost memorized the patterns. Those same plates make an appearance in my piece "Collection of Plates" http://mw-artco.blogspot.com/2007/03/collection-of-plates.html
