DAY 15 just how still do you want

Sometimes ideas for paintings just don't jump to the forefront of my brain.  When that happens I have lots of impressionists to choose from. A Matisse still life is my favorite.  This painting is representative of one he did in 1918.  Of course the colors are different and I used a jar instead of a glass of water, etc.
However, that being said, I see painters in galleries painting paintings by the masters.  Their task is to copy the painting and by doing so they will learn the techniques. And on days like today, I want to do just that.  I am unwilling to use the oils though.  I still prefer the acrylic and hair dryer method.
