I have an Instagram friend!
You know, I've never met her. But we follow each other over time. We got to know each other merely by posts.
I guess that really isn't getting to know someone. But it's an online friendship. I would definitely say this because she announced that she is moving. And I found myself sad! I've never even met her. Oh well.
She sent me some images. Apparently antique cans are a thing. I had no idea until she sent the pics. I'm not really up to date on things.
But I loved these cans! So I painted one.
The can looked rough in the picture and the watercolor looks rough. I guess I nailed that part.
Product packaging is awesome to me - I think because I love typography. These old containers are fascinating when the text seems more pure. I can't explain what I mean by that, it's just... that.
I do hope this 'friend' has a smooth move to the new state and home. Having moved a few times, I do miss the excitement of the new adventure.
As for now, I have a painting of an antique can.
I like the challenge of picking something that is not on my radar to paint. Don't hesitate to ask. I may just do it!
