Strainer, Grapefruit, Glass

Strainer, Grapefruit, Glass. Original oil on panel, 6" x 6".
The purple and blue glasses were too much fun to put away. I wanted to work on simplifying them more, and I really like how the colors came out. This time I added a fantastic antique strainer I found at one of the Hillyard shops. The marbled handle looks like horn or tortoiseshell, but is made of Bakelite. Not that you can tell from half an inch of it, but I will tackle it again in the future. I expected the springy bit to be horrible to paint, but it was the easiest part of the whole thing.
