# 19 Mason Jar with Tootsie Pops - Sheryl Hawkins


I painted this as a follow up to my Tootsie Pop watercolor. I have a jar of Tootsie Pops in my studio- mostly for a quick sugar fix while painting, but also a colorful painting subject! It was fun to paint since I am always working on my skills in the area of reflections and shiny surfaces. Of course, I am continually working on improving my painting skills in many areas, but lately the reflective surfaces are at the top of my list.

This is so cool - both the idea and your terrific job of capturing it. It immediately brings back memories of both Tootsie Pops and Ball jars. I am intrigued and in awe of how you have captured the glass jar w/ see-through to the pops! Quite fun!

Sheryl, you are certainly doing a great job of the reflections and the lights! The glass jar is terrific!

...I haven't had lunch yet, and "a quick sugar fix" sounds really good. You really have a talent for capturing the reflective surface of glass. I can tell you enjoy painting it!!
