"Pitcher This..."

I decided to go light!  This is a painting of a very nicely aged  (love the patina) pitcher staged with a piece of clothe I got at the fabric store and fruit from the market...  I love the texture of the clothe and plan to stage it in  future settings... the ivy is from a clipping of one of my mothers ivy potted plants.

Strawberries in Cordial glass

Hi friends... This post is a bit delayed - I've been a bit distracted lately with a lot activity.  I went to the Greenhouse Gallery last week to pick up the painting "The Delicious Subject".  Before going I did complete another small work - just hadn't posted it yet.  I've also been working on a larger painting - a still life which I will be posting later this week.  Back to topic -

This beautiful Cordial glass is slightly tinted blue - you'll notice the strawberries in the glass have a bit of a frosted blueish purple look to them as a result.   I purchased the cordials at an auction - there are six total and  four various colors.  You'll be seeing the others in the future.  I love the lines of this glass... hope you enjoy what I've done with it...  The painting will be framed floater style in a custom frame.

Berries and Cream

I picked up this little creamer at a local antique dealer (although I don't think it's really an antique... I thought it was cute) and decided to stage it with some berries.  Used low lighting for the light effects.
