Bell Jar

So, after everyone had gone to bed at my dd's ... I grabbed my daughter's 'belljar' and sketched it quickly -- sans contact lenses, ample light, and to be honest, enough energy! (This was after the museum!!!! LOL)

I didn't have a chance to paint it until I got home Sunday night ... but I loved the unusual design and bright peacock colors ....
