Perc and Cup

Perc with Cup
oil on hardboard panel
6'' x 6"

I've had this little percolator for a few years now, and it's one of my favorite things to paint. It doesn't produce a mirror image of the room like some of my other appliances, but it does create wonderful patterns of color in its' surface. I enjoy pairing that material with the subtle variety of light and shadow in the cup. It's a recurrent theme in my work, and I hope to continue to use it well into the future.

Nice one...
I love the warm to cool balance in this subject, then the opposite cool to warm in the background. I always enjoy visiting your blog!
