Fireside Pot maker


Fireside Pot maker – Oil on 9 x 12 Canvas Panel – Painted 2/11/2010 – In my mind I could see the flickering open fire reflecting color off the potters mud covered wet slicked hands as he / or she formed the pot from wet clay. The fire only provides minimum light, but still there is enough to produce vivid color and in turn hopefully strong emotion. I really like the way this one came out and plan another similar one in the future. Your comments are welcome.

About rbaker

Russell BakerSacramento, Northern California, United StatesAs a student in northern Minnesota I enjoyed being an artist. My uncle Charles: C. X. Carlson, a noted author, artist and muralist was a great influence me. I sketched and painted everyday until age sixteen or so, then it seemed as though life took over. Now, 40+ years later and retired, I have returned to the more pleasurable pastimes of my youth. This year, 2007, I started drawing, painting and playing music once again. It will be interesting to see where these endeavors guide me and how my skills in turn develop over time. Everything I offer here is an original. Some may be renditions of other works I find interesting, however originals just the same. If you see something you would like to purchase, email me.
