Cups, Oil on Linen 9x12
I don't recall ever having done still lifes before. It's more of a challenge than I thought. The last couple that appeared on this blog were created in Richard Abraham's evening class. Stay tuned for more basement finds in the future.

I think these are family heirlooms too, although I must admit their significance is lost on me. Some have sibling's names and dates of birth; others don't have an inscription. I think they're akin to the bronzed booties people used to keep on their mantel.
