"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
