Tiny Treasure #41

Still lifes are still one of my favorite subject matters! A simple pairing can bloom into a rich painting that has a life of its own; the sum of its parts equal far more than each of them alone.

Shadows are always a challenge and as I was setting this up, I didn't notice that there was a faint, second shadow that, when added, enhances the depth and reality of the painting.
