My apologies for the month long blog hiatus. Sadly, my stepmother passed away suddenly and unexpectedly August 30. In the ensuing month, I have been busy caring for my father who is 95 and, of course heartbroken at the loss of his dear wife. Now that things have settled down a bit, I can return to the blog, though it may not be with the same twice weekly regularity for a while yet.
I have not had time to do any small paintings this past month, this is one I did earlier in the summer of a friend's small pewter pitcher. I really enjoy painting metal, and in this simple set up I just tried to focus on bringing out the range of colors in the pewter.
