Upside-Down

Oil on Aluminum Panel, 9x12"
This one seemed really hard for some reason. I'm still not sure about it, but it was at a point where continued painting did not necessarily equal improvement. I'll have to let it dry, then take another look and touch up a few details. Next!

I think it turned out really well, but I defintely feel for you--metals are extremely stressful for me.

David, I will take your word for it. : )

BG, I thought stuff like that was really hard to paint, too. The good thing about spoon reflections is that they are inverted, and it forces you to look at the reflection as a series of shapes rather than a complex object. Sometimes I feel like I'm struggling, but I can see a steady improvement since I started my blog, so that's good!

these are really going well. Are you going to try some other artists too?

Hi Bill,
Yes I have some others in mind and I've worked out some preliminary versions. The Mondrian backgrounds are so striking; they are definitely the favorite. This one is my own color scheme and composition, but obviously based on his work. Thanks!
