Diane Mannion, Tiny Pitcher, #28 Snippet, 3.5x2.5"oil on linen/mounted

Roaming around a restaurant supply store with my chef husband's always a visual feast.  Shiny things!  Interesting shapes!  I'm like a kid in a candy store.  Picked this little pitcher out... perfect for my tiny snippet series!

Almost finished with the Leslie Saeta 30 Paintings in 30 Days, but will do a few more to have enough for my Blurb book project.  Still life painting tips coming soon.

Folks are buying several of these miniature paintings, mounting and framing as a group.  2013 Snippet Series sold out.  There will be no more than 40 in the 2014 Snippet Series.  They will also be used as illustrations in my still life painting book.

Wow Diane, I feel like I can polish that silver vase!

Oh My Gosh - this is so amazing on so many levels. Your painting and guidance on how to do it is going into my logbook.

I love how vibrant the reflections are and your comments about how to "distort" them. I feel like I've been through a $500 workshop. Thanks so much!
