Painting Memories: Ball, Kerr, Atlas and Mason Jars

My childhood memories are full of colorful jars. 

Vibrant jars of produce cooled on my great-grandmother's kitchen shelves. Jars brimming with colored water cast red, blue and yellow shadows on our butcher block. My grandmother's button collection sparkled at me through a jar on her dresser. Sometimes on warm summer evenings, I fell asleep by the light of a Mason jar shimmering with fireflies.

I guess you could say that I like to paint jars because it gives me something to store my memories in.  Below are some of  my watercolor paintings that depict the colorful jars of my childhood.
