I dont do a lot of these small studies, but every now and then I do a series of them to take a break from trompe l'oiel. This peice is only 6x6. Its a old fruit press I bought thinking one day I would do a major painting of it. I like to do these when I feel my battery needs recharging. Trompe l'oiel can take so long and with these the results are so much more immediate, and sometimes an artist needs that. I guess this is my version of a daily painting. I'm in the process of doing more of these and I will be posting them soon, I hope people will find them of some interest.
