We are leaving Brooklyn this week, so I went to The Painted Pot on Saturday night for the last time.

My son and I have been going to this local pottery studio since he was about 18 months old. He's glazed piggy banks, mugs, bowls, light switch covers, and several other gifts for the family. Oddly, though, I never really participated. I just watched, admired and supported him, but I didn't create anything myself. However, after my wonderful experience painting with the Empty Bowls Project, I really wanted to paint by myself this time.

I started with several layers of glaze, and after some drawing and re-drawing, I ended up with this bird. I loved making this painting. I can't wait to see what it looks like when I pick it up this week. I'll be sure to post it. Stay tuned.
