"Reflecting on the Reflective"

Oil on Board. Approx 8"x8" SOLD

I have a large number of still life items in my studio. I have bought a bunch but have yet to paint them. This creamer is one of those that I am finally painting. It a challenging subject because it's so reflective. The color is a bit brown, purple, blue...it all depends on how the light is hitting it.

Luscious use of paint is what I think stands out so much about your work...the creamer looks so slick, shiny and well ceramic! Not to mention composition, draftsmanship, values, color and brushwork. I just love this little piece.
