"An awkward moment" 6"x6" oil on Ampersand Gessobord

It was an awkward moment this chance meeting.  They were rolling along and all of a sudden she loomed large in their path.   They said nothing as they stared at one another remembering their last meeting and how it all went wrong.

A few of you have asked how I get the round objects round.   Actually, and don't laugh, I start with a square, marking the top, bottom, left and right sides then I place 45° angles on all the corners thus making it  an octagon and then rounding it off with the background color.   Ovals, such as the top of the jar has, is done in the same manor except that it is a rectangle to start.
