Photo for second exercise

I decided on my photo for the second exercise for the art quilt group.  It is a pottery jug that sits on my front porch.  It  belonged to my husband's mother.  I love the shape and patina and the chipped edges.  I am not sharing my first sketch....a second one is called for.  Like I said I am not a great artist, but working on learning.  Anyway, I think I will try this in blues rather than the black/gray palette.   I think I will used a crazy-patch style background for it, too, and try to get the shadow worked into it .
While I was taking photos, I also took one of this stone in the front court yard.   A few months after we moved to this house, my girlfriend from Florida came up to help me get a start on the beds and entry area.  Doreen and I hauled stones and sand, and planted the ground cover and shrubs  to create a court yard entry.  This is one of those flag stones.  It is a natural scene right in the, mountains, and  valley.  Some things can't be improved upon.

Both photographs could be turned into very interesting art quilts.

You are right Carol. Now that I look at the stone again, I may just add that to my list of projects!
