"Salt Pottery with Grapes" - Daily #5

"Salt Vase with Grapes", oil on linen on panel, 6 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches

As a painter of 'chiaroscuro' (light and shadow) I'm enjoying painting these little 'dailies' in a higher key (lighter).   It's fun to put the paint on in such an impasto way.
All of these paintings are painted from life and the objects in them are life-size or smaller.  Placing the grapes in the vase gives you an idea of the scale. 
I bought this tiny little vase at a pottery sale last year and could hardly wait to paint it.   I'm sure you'll see it again one day..... 

This painting is now available at Art Country Canada Gallery
