So nice! I especially like the little silver or pewter pitcher. Wonderful feel to the painting! :) Nancy

Thank you Nancy - appreciate the feed back. That is an antique small sterling silver creamer that belong to my wife's great grandmother - we have a larger gravy boat from the same colloection also. I'll do a little tweaking here and there in the reflection area - but will let it sit for a while.

Thank you Chammi and Mz Sketch Pad what - a really nice piece of feedback. Kind of cold here in Santa Fe for Iced tea, but I came across the ingredients while searching the net. Plan to make some this summer!

Wow, every item in this painting is so beautifully and skillfully done--it shows such care. Usually an odd number of items in a still life is better, but this is perfect. I always learn something from the paintings you post.

Thank you Louise the Reader - If you count the square plate behind the objects, that would make 5 objects in the painting - however I do love to break the rules!!!! I plan to make Pear ice tea this summer as a toast to all the pears I've painted. I'm going up to the mountain and drink my pear tea while I paint my aspens Plein air!!!
