Vintage Copper

Vintage Copper, 18x24" oil, Diane Mannion

Playing with Patterns and Light

Always on the lookout for still life objects, this vintage copper pitcher caught my eye at the Hughes Gallery where it was graciously loaned.  The hanging 1950's tablecloth was purchased in an antique shop, and the bottom one was a lucky find in a Maine thriftshop (kept me warm during a long cold night in the Portland airport waiting for a flight home).  

The blue Ball canning jar and the ceramic turquoise pitcher are part of my still life object collection and have been painted many times.   I consider these objects "actors" waiting in the wings!
A small part of my collection waiting to be painted...  or for one heck of a garage sale.
