"Pondering the Master"

" Pondering the Master", oil on linen on panel, 6 x 7 3/4 inches


I often find myself "pondering the master" while painting. This tiny ceramic vessel with its lovely windmill pattern has appeared in my work more times than I can count and I never grow tired of painting it.  It brings fondly to mind, Rembrandt, and my trip to his home and studio in Amsterdam.  A well-squeezed tube of cadmium scarlet paint complements the blue windmill.  The copper coffee can, which contains walnut oil to clean my brushes, was just fun to paint.
