Mexican Ashtray on Aluminum Foil

Only this one today. I had to make peach pies to pay back favors and since it is as hot as the Congo here in central Texas I got started early and didn't get into the studio until afternoon. This set up was really too complicated for the sort of quick study I wanted to do, but sometimes I like all the visual overwhelm of lots of detail, you just make yourself hack away at it. And I like so much aluminum foil, it is just a magic surface with soft reflections, sort of Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca in the rain.

  2. Beautiful!! Your blog is filled with wonderful paintings.
