Another Peek

Here's another detail of my water themed still life, in progress. It has been waiting way too long for me to get back to it, but my plan is to have a finished piece by Sunday. The biggest challenge in this section will be that super bright sun reflection on the water in the pitcher. I really want it to zing the eye a bit. Wish me luck!

'Water' Work in Progress... A Peek

This detail if from a still life I'm working on for a water-themed group show in November. I've always loved the variety of brilliance that results when sunshine and water meet. In this piece, I'll show that brilliance in, through, and on the surface of water, in glass jars and a pottery pitcher. The tomatoes and parsley are yet another product of water plus sunshine, and the swirling, free-form design of the vintage enamel tray seems to mimic water.

Perhaps I'll post the other three corners of this before showing the whole, finished piece!
