16 Copper Pot and Apples

Diane Mannion, Copper Pot and Apples, 8x10" o/c

      16th for the 30/30 Challenge.  Started as a class demo in Punta Gorda this morning, finished later.  I like some bits of this... relished painting the apples, like the purple flowers, but it's not one of my favorites.  If I had time, I'd add more things in the background, which I can always do later.

Beautiful. I love to see artists that can make metal like copper or gold or silver look like they're supposed to.

Lovely - really lovely. Fabulous use of color.

Julie, nice to get a comment from another 30/30 Challenger! Your work is gorgeous.

Thanks, Kathleen. Great to see you in class. Yes, it's almost impossible to get a brushstroke in edgewise in that class. I told everyone at the beginning (you missed it) that I was doing a demo of starting a painting.) I'd rather folks worked on their own stuff than watch me paint, except for short demos.
