Off Beat

By this second painting, I was really having fun with these spoons.  I was also feeling a bit more competent mixing various grays. And actually I was discovering how  to make grays look silver. These are long handled ice cream sundae spoons that I've had forever. When my kids were younger we decorated the handles with polymer clay to really jazz up the ice cream celebration. The clay covered handle is what you see here. Here's some of the music I listened to while painting. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'music' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)

Fabulous...on my thumbnail on my blog it looked like SPAGHHHETTTI noodles were wrapped around the fork:) but I have not had lunch yet so that might explain my eyes playing tricks on me.
I just love all the color nuances you show in this silver!

I haven't been around, Brenda, my oldest has been very sick. I like your spoon series. I decided to comment on this one as it is my favorite one. The light source appears so real that I feel I have to squint. On my screen I get to see it actual size - it's really quite impressive. I enjoyed seeing a series with completely different subject matter. Of all of them, this one "got there" for me. Carolina
