Please click here to bid on this painting.

I had such a great time painting this little silver bowl on Sunday, I decided to paint it again. 

I think what draws me to painting the silver bowl against a light background, is all of the lost edges.  That means that there isn’t a lot of contrast between the object itself the background behind it.  When handled correctly, it’s these edges that give a painting it’s sense of atmosphere and gives a painted object a feeling of volume.
