The Goblet

6x8" oil on canvas board. $45. Available here

Here's a still life in oils! I was in the mood to do something a bit more traditional than the colourful acrylic compositions I've been working on lately, and when I dug this old silver goblet out of a cupboard, I knew it had to be the centre of the piece. I found a slice of melon in the fridge which I was eager to paint as well- and blueberries, I love capturing the way the light reflects off them. The trickiest part was the lettuce leaf, the way it curls and folds over took a lot of squinting and re-painting to get right.
