Silver Kettle with Apple

Kettle with Apple
oil on hardboard panel
6'' x 6"

Some silver tonight. I purchased this little kettle about four years ago, and I think it has become the most painted item in our house. The shape is fantastic, and the near spherical body of the kettle gives you a wonderfully distorted view of which ever room it happens to be in. This composition was photographed very early in the morning. The dark blue coming in through the windows reflected in the surface is that of the dawn. The composition is illuminated by a single incandescent bulb inside a beautiful greek fishermans lamp hanging above our kitchen table. The apple adds some color, and an additonal reflection.
