A Little Girl's Treasure

"A Little Girl's Treasure"   6" x 8"  Oil on Gessobord

I’m fortunate to have been able to get into a weekly class taught by Mark Daily.  We’re working on still life right now.  I love the outdoors and the landscape so this is not something that I’m driven towards. But I understand that like figure drawing much can be learned and applied towards my landscapes.

I placed a piece of glass over purple card stock.  The lighting situation was a little difficult as it wasn’t a strong directional light but a light that was overhead and threw shadows in different directions. Pretty challenging for me.

The ornament is one that was given to my grandmother by her grandmother over 100 years ago.  I have several ornaments that were hers that I treasure very much.  I looked forward to spending  the night with her, cuddled up and listening to all her childhood memories that were tied to those ornaments.
