"Mere Shadows"

5 1/2"x 8 1/2"
Oil on Paper

To purchase, email me with the title in the subject line.

I went to hear a friend of mine play at O-Cha tea bar last week, and while I was listening to her, of course started sketching. This vase of flowers was sitting on the table next to me. The flowers were pretty, but what really drew my attention was the shadow created by the bright light directly overhead. In this piece, I wanted to give you just a glimpse of the actual object, but then force you to figure out what the rest of the object looks like just through its shadow.

I was also able to film this piece as I worked on it, so if I can edit it a bit, I hope to post it in a few days.
