First of all I am thrilled to tell you all that the awesome Carrie Waller featured my art in her blog as a Friday Feature. You can check it out here. Thank you Carrie. It was absolute pleasure.
Now coming to the painting. After the flowers I did last time I thought of doing some cutlery as still life and set this up on my table. Though there was no milk in the funnily shaped mug, I am calling it Milk and Biscuits. I feel it has a nice ring to it.
This piece is going to remain in my memory for a long time as something disastrous yet funny thing happened during this painting. I had bought a new table lamp to do the lighting of these still life studies I have started. I wanted a typical old timer's table lamp with a metal shed. But all I got was this one with a plastic shed. The plastic was supposed to be heat resistant, otherwise why should it be put on a lamp. At least that is what I assumed till disaster struck. It was around mid night and my painting was nearing completion and suddenly I see something hanging from the table lamp. It was the molten plastic from the lamp shed which had solidified while dropping out of the lamp. I am planning to continue with the lamp just to see how big the hole in the shed can get.
Till then have a great day. And do make sure that that there is no plastic in your lamp shed. :)
