Squeaky Clean – Daily Painting

January 11th, 2007

“Squeaky Clean” – 5″ x 7″ – oil on canvasboard

Fresh off the easel … this is our upstairs bathroom soapdish, lathered up to give it a little more interest. I think it’s Irish Spring but I couldn’t be sure. The words had worn off.

I thought the bubbles were going to be the most difficult part to paint, but it didn’t turn out that way. The biggest challenge was the dish itself, which is probably a hand built and hand painted, with strange dips and turns and curves along the fluted edge.
But, you know, I like a challenge, so it was actually kind of fun.

  5. Karen, this is a great painting. I like how you did the soap bubbles… they are so transparent and yet I feel I could ‘pop’ them one by one!
