Sugar Bowl

6 x 6 oil on hardboard
This sugar bowl was part of a collection of silver items given to us by Karen's parents a while back. The gift consisted of some flatware, sugar bowl, creamer and a water pitcher. I love the symmetry of this little silver bowl, with the pineapple finial on top. A really great shape, and the mirrored finish provides a wonderfully distorted view of the surrounding room. If you'd like to bid on this painting, you can access the auction by clicking here.

So elegant!

Brilliant idea having the room in the bowl's reflection! A nice contrast between the two (one being very stately, the other being very homey).
