Mason Jar in Orange (12x9 inches)
Mason Jar in Orange
Oil on Linen
I have been making paintings of mason jars for the last couple years. There is a universality about them that intrigues me.
Mason jars were invented by John Landis Mason in November of 1858 and have become indispensable to everyone from homesteaders to hipsters since. We’ve all got at least a couple kicking around out house holding everything from food, to random screws and nails. They even make great vases in a pinch. In my house they serve as drinking glasses, dry food storage, leftover storage, and as jars to hold my painting medium.
This is a recent painting I made of an empty one that is ever-present in the studio and usually filled with seltzer.
