Some things just don’t fit into a Mason jar.

My daughter loves dance, and I wanted to incorporate that joy into one of the paintings in my preserved series.  I thought I’d paint one of her pointe shoes in one of the Mason jars I’d been using for the series. The problem was that the Mason jar was just too small.  Instead of giving up on the idea, I remembered that I had salvaged a good sized pickle jar (you never know when you’re going to need one) that might fit the bill. It turned out to be the perfect home to preserve or pickle that most elegant of shoes.
