This piece is one of a collection of new work I am showing in the Whitehouse Gallery’s Spring exhibition, in Kirkcudbright.
I am enjoying working in acrylic, after many years exclusively using oil. I am choosing different coloured grounds or undercoat and enjoying the effect this has on the subsequent layers of paint.
The blue and white milk Jug was used by my late father in law , for the last five years since his wife’s death. He wrote to her every evening , in his diary , telling her how his day had went, any family news and how much he loved and missed her.Their family home is now cleared and up for sale, very sad but I am happy to be including this little Jug in this piece, bringing back fond memories.
