Copper, Pears & Sunflowers, Oil 8 X 10

Hello, I did this painting yesterday at my Monday morning painting group. I've had this old copper container for a while, don't know what it was originally used for but I love it. I did the gray blue background hoping to make the copper stand out. I've been thinking a lot about the subjects I paint. I think I do kitchen and dining room art mostly, lots of pitchers and fruit. I enjoy painting these things but wonder if I should branch out and do art you could hang in other parts of your home. Don't think I'll ever be much of a landscape painter, I seem to struggle more with that subject. I love to paint and would still paint even if I never sold anything but it's nice to make something to help with the expenses if nothing else. Anyway I'll shut up for now, let me know what you think of my newest. Happy painting. Barb

That gray works well with this one Barb. I also like how you lightened the background on the dark side of the copper pot and darkened it behind the light side and light pears. That was smart.
