I posted my finished painting of the bowls on rookiepainter I had so much fun experimenting on it. Recently I visited Chicago and saw the Impressionist/Modern paintings in the Art Institute of Chicago and was spellbound. Then at Christmas, my son and daughter-in-law did some painting, and they were willing to try anything. Joseph even put caulking on his and it worked great. So, I thought, "Van Gogh. I'll try it."
