"Chrome Creamer with Spoon No.2"

Oil on 1/4" Board. Approx 8"x4" SOLD.

At first glance this may seem like a limited palette was used but with a closer look you see blues, greens, yellows and more. Instead of using a spot light for this setup, I just let the window next to me do the trick. The sun is shining bright around here today...it's 4 degrees out but the sun is shining.

Yeah!!! And Wow!!! I am just amazed at the subtlety you capture in those reflections while remaining painterly. I am so impressed. ps. Congrats on the new house and studio!!!

Great design. The spoon dances with the napkin it rests on. The spoon sweeps leads right up the pot. Very subtle color and consistant reflections. Sweet.

Michael, I'm just a little behind on my blog reading. This is a super painting. So subtle and great reflections. Great job!
