Shiny Pots and Posies...

One thing that catches my interest as a painter is how reflections play out in a painting, specifically how they worked on shiny metal containers. Even if they are not in shadow, they are still reflected light, yes? So I painted the following two - one copper and one brass.

Fe, Phi, Fo, Fum - I smell the blood of an Englishman!

I had to share this Myron Barnstone video - He is 80 years young (when I wrote this post), and opinionated in the best possible way. 

In this video, he shares his take on the ongoing question "What is Art"?

Don't you love it???

Myron Barnstone has passed away now 10/29/16, but his daughter is keeping his legacy going.
She has started a Facebook page also to help his students stay connected.
