Silver on Silver, Side by Side, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

10x8 oil on canvas

Imagine them larger... Just for fun

I think this will be the last painting in this Silver on Silver series... at least for a while.  (They would great hanging in a kitchen or dinning room, especially if you have a stainless steel stove and or refrigerator.)

The Development of stainless steel by a Sheffield (in England) metallurgist in the 1920s was an important improvement, and is now the standard material for knife blades today.   I have noticed on many cooking shows on the Food Network, that each chef seems to have his or her favorite manufacturer for their blade of choice, and I am amazed at the seemingly endless supply of options.  And here I thought there was only two knife options... sharp or dull. (only kidding!)

$150.00, 10x8 oil on canvas



Your limited palette really lends to the overall effect Kim - love the starkness, as well as varied cropped in compositions.

Kim, I have enjoyed this series- somehow missed the upside down fork yesterday...very cool and fun reflection there.
Really like this last one- I can just see the stroke marks and they must be fabulous in person. Love the bits of shadows and highlights.
Look forward to what you will create next!
