Jana's Jars - My Latest Swap Painting

This lovely painting arrived in the mail Saturday afternoon from my latest SWAP partner, Jana Dahmen.  Oh My, how lucky can I get?  An original "Dahmen"!  How I love her paintings!  This painting is alive with color and spontaneous brush strokes.  There is no one who can paint glass and reflections better than Jana!  Thank You, for this beautiful painting.

I think her handling of the metallic lids is outstanding! Great swap there Barbara. That said, methinks she is just as lucky as you are!

I just returned to blogland after pretty much being away all week for other activities and it's so nice to see this painting and what you've been doing. I'm wanting to try a knife painting, but in acrylic as I am not (yet at least) an oil painter. Your knife painting is most successful. You already know that I am partial to your monochromatic pieces and your latest is no exception.
